Praise for “The Shift”
“…this meticulous, absorbing shift-in-the-life account of one nurse’s day on a cancer ward stands out for its honesty, clarity, and heart. Brown…juggles the fears, hopes, and realities of a 12-hour shift in a typical urban hospital with remarkable insight and unflagging care. Her memoir is a must-read….”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The Shift is the ultimate fly-on-the-wall experience. Theresa Brown has succeeded in serving up a thoroughly engrossing view of the everyday in an American hospital. I got so caught up in her stories that I was late for my shift at the hospital.”
—Dr. Pauline W. Chen, author of Final Exam: A Surgeon’s Reflections on Mortality
“Nursing needs more participant/observers like Theresa Brown who can give such eloquent voice to a profession long overshadowed by medicine but no less essential to the care of patients.”
—Suzanne Gordon, author of Beyond the Checklist.
