My Impressions: 

My mom is an RN and I have heard horror stories from her my whole life so when I saw this book I knew we both had to read it!  We adored the nursing experience stories and could relate to them on so many different levels. This book has us laughing and nodding our heads all the way through. Any one in the nursing profession will be able to relate to this book and will enjoy it greatly. 

But this book is not just about nursing. It goes deeper than that. It is a book also about how to handle the curve balls that life will throw at you. Sometimes your dreams are not what God has in store for you and you find yourself of a different path in life. Joel's dream was to be an actor, but the reality was he needed a regular paycheck to be able to chase his dream. 

Welcome to Nursing Hello captures the humor of the life of a nurse, but also the creative passions of a young man that has not given up on his dreams, but has found a new and profound way to live them out.
