Sarah Jane is a sixteen-year-old country girl, a little old-fashioned with a mischievous sense of humour, who suddenly decides she wants to be a nurse. 
I am not sure what Florence Nightingale would make of her! 
Sarah Jane has no career aspirations, all she wants is to leave school, work as a cashier at Woolworths and get married. Then everything changes and she finds herself wearing a fluorescent pink uniform and studying to get into Nursing School. 
What inspired this surprising change of direction? What happens when she leaves her Suffolk home, friends and family to live in nurses quarters in an Essex garrison town with a housemate who is a party animal? 

5-star reviewers say: 

"I laughed out loud at the hilarious antics, and was sobered by the genuine emotional moments that all health professionals will recognise. This is a book that will make you laugh and cry and you’ll feel better for it - The perfect prescription." Bookworm 

"This funny, yet poignant nursing memoir has Sarah Jane's trademark honest writing style which shines through in every story she tells. From starting her student nurse training in Essex to coping with patients in happy, sad and heart-breaking situations. It gives you a young woman's view into the realities of entering the world of nursing in the 1980’s. A highly entertaining and informative memoir which was able to take me from laughing out loud to having welled tears of empathy." S. Brewster
