What's it Really Like to be a Nurse?
On the Apr. 19, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Alexandra Robbins, award-winning author of The Nurses: A year of secrets, drama, and miracles with the heroes of the hospital. We'll discuss not only what it's really like to be a nurse but what patients and family members should know about receiving medical care in the hospital.
Plus call-in Workovers. Whatever career malady ails you, I can usually provide a pill that's better than a placebo.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on 91.7 FM and is archived for a week on NPR.org and iTunes, and in perpetuity here on KALW.org.
