ALICE SPRINGS, Tenn. (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Author Beverley Keegan recalls more than half a century of nursing experiences in her new memoir, “Television, Bedpans, and Me: A Life Lived in the Red Centre of Australia” (published by iUniverse).
Growing up in a small mining town in New South Wales, Australia, during World War II, Keegan knew that she wanted to become a nurse. Her adventures began when she traveled to Sydney on an overnight train to commence her nursing training. Once she became a nurse, her working life continued for more than 50 years in various locations in Australia, New Guinea, and the Red Centre around Alice Springs.
“Television, Bedpans, and Me” tells the true story of the many adventures Keegan encountered as she traveled around Australia throughout her nursing career. Her story follows the amazing growth of medicine, from basic nursing in the 1950s, to the electronic age of today.
This nursing memoir shares the journey taken by one woman, including humorous tales, pathos, and ordinary family occurrences that color all of our lives, while tracing the development of the miracles of modern medicine. Keegan lovingly recounts her experiences as a registered nurse and recalls the people she has nursed and worked with for over half a century.
