‘Blue Girl: Nursing Beyond the Ward’ By Emma Gracie

In 1997, just before I turned 16, I was accidentally flung into the world of healthcare. This unexpected journey lit a fire in me that would carry me through the next 23 years of nursing.

I’ve witnessed births, deaths and all that lies in between. I’ve been exhausted, heartbroken and anguished and I have battled my own illness that forced me to change places from nurse to patient.

But I have also had a blast. I’ve met and learned from extraordinary characters who I can never forget. I’d love you to meet them too and share the crazy, sad, shocking, moving and hilarious experiences that made me Blue Girl.
