An Academic Nurse’s Tale: Triumphs, Tribulations, and Travels” (published by Archway Publishing) follows Pamela J. Brink, RN, PhD, FAAN, from age 19 as she starts her career as a nurse in the 1950s, sharing both the challenges and the rewards.

Brink never really wanted to be a nurse, but in “An Academic Nurse’s Tale,” she narrates how her choice turned out to be a perfect one. She began her nursing career in the 1950s, and it spanned the most turbulent times in nursing education in the United States. Brink documents the times, offering a glimpse of the remarkably interesting period in the development of education, research, theory, and skills. She also presents a look at the ever-changing aspects of academic nursing.

The author hopes that her book teaches readers “That nursing is a versatile profession open to anyone.”
