Sabra always wanted to be a nurse. Despite some financial troubles, she is on her way to training. She also is engaged to the ultra cool Dr. Galen Trent. This book drags us through the training regimen of the “probs” (probationary nurses). They have 3 months to prove themselves or they are out. The rules are quite detailed. Obedience to the rule is everything. The plot centers on the decision to break the rules in order to save a life. Tough stuff. It all works out in the end and she makes it through the training to get her cap.
Not the best of this genre, but not the worst either. I was exhausted just reading about the do’s and don’ts for the probs. It seemed like most of these rules were all about keeping the pecking order in place. Patient care didn’t seem to be as important as being sure that people went into the room in the correct order. (Doctors first, nurses with caps next, etc.) The strict rules had me thinking more about prison camp than nurse training.
