Everything Is Possible: A Nurse’s Memoir” (published by Archway Publishing) recounts the personal and professional life of a woman – a daughter, nurse, wife, mother, friend, educator, scholar and mentor – through the decades that span the second half of the 20th century and reach into the new millennium. Author Sylvia Kleiman Fields shares her diverse experiences and places them in the context of world events that mark those decades.

This is the inspiring story of a child of European Jewish immigrants with a spiritual base, strong work ethic and passionate love of learning, who dared to dream of life as an exciting challenge and meaningful adventure through community service. “Everything Is Possible” describes Fields’s exceptional educational experiences and personal struggles at home while exploring creative roles in professional nursing and new leadership opportunities in medical publishing, education and research.

“My stories were often unique experiences of how my career kept moving forward in stimulating and satisfying ways… Despite losses, I kept smiling and making new friends as the world changed for women,” Fields says. “I am grateful for a fulfilling professional legacy that continues today for ‘love I found in the sunset of my life.’”
