"Transitioning to rural practice can be daunting for both experienced nurses and new graduates who have an urban orientation and are accustomed to specialized practice with abundant health care resources. Since most nursing education programs and practicing nurses are located in urban settings, programs are needed to prepare nurses who choose rural practice. In their book, Dr. Molinari and Dr. Bushy provide excellent examples of practice models from North America, New Zealand, and Australia with curricula that address transition issues. The text makes a significant contribution to the discussion about how to best prepare nurses for rural practice and will be of interest to administrators, educators, and clinicians.

Where Is the Mango Princess?

A Journey Back From Brain Injury

Author: Cathy Crimmins

Publisher: Vintage

ISBN: 0307816192

Category: Psychology

Page: 272

View: 2895

Humorist Cathy Crimmins has written a deeply personal, wrenching, and often hilarious account of the effects of traumatic brain injury, not only on the victim, in this case her husband, but on the family. When her husband Alan is injured in a speedboat accident, Cathy Crimmins reluctantly assumes the role of caregiver and learns to cope with the person he has become. No longer the man who loved obscure Japanese cinema and wry humor, Crimmins' husband has emerged from the accident a childlike and unpredictable replica of his former self with a short attention span and a penchant for inane cartoons. Where Is the Mango Princess? is a breathtaking account that explores the very nature of personality-and the complexities of the heart.

Why you should be reading this book. To the victims of crime: Make no mistake about it, after reading this book, you will know beyond a reasonable doubt that prisoners in jail are suffering. Whether it is on the city, county, or state level, prisoners are living in a world that far extends the suffering they have inflicted upon you. Having this knowledge will never make up for your loss or ill feelings. It can only do two things: give you peace of mind...or allow you to forgive. In any case, each and every day a criminal is behind bars, s/he is subject to disease, destruction, despair, and death. This book will provide you with extremely vivid details of the life of a prisoner...And I can assure you, whats going in the mind of a prisoner is far more torturous than whats happening in the cell. To the parents: What will it be today that sets you apart from the responsibility of being accountable to your children. How will you spend your day? What puts you at risk of coming to jail today? Consider the events that make up your day; the drives, the pick ups, the drops, the fighting, the stealing, the dealing, the doping, the drinking. How much longer can you play this game of roulette with your children? Whats it going take for you to already realize the sorrow, regret, and despair, you will feel by coming to jail and simultaneously abandoning your children. To the criminal: Are you alone? Did you come to jail today? Will you be here tomorrow? Does your history wish for a better re-occurrence of events unfolding in your life? Right now, at this very moment, are you in jail because of some unforseen future that should have been recognized long before the cuffs were place around your wrists? If you are in jail today, have been in jail before, or are setting yourself up to go to jail, this is the book to read. Jail is the sentence you receive for committing a crime. The sentence will be time. But the true punishment of your crime will come from the imprisonment of your mind. Peter Hall
