When sixteen year old Kate Genovese went to visit her sister Denise in the hospital in 1968, she claims "something clicked that very moment, I wanted to make Denise better again, heal her shattered body and make her laugh ... I couldn't put words to my feelings, but I knew I wanted to do more then just visit" That day Kate discovered her calling in life, nursing, and spent the next thirty years on an adventure that has been at once rewarding and devastating, tumultuous and spiritual.

Her memoir poignantly describes the adventures of her nursing career, beginning with her trial-some days as an LPN, where she lost her nursing license because of a drug addiction, her recovery, and going back to school once again to obtain her RN. The memoir meanders through the eighties and nineties, where she writes about her experiences with insurance companies and federal Medicare systems, which have proven to be somewhat flawed in the method in which they fund patients.

Interspersed within the memoir are hilarious anecdotes about nursing "mishaps" magical accounts of patients having near death experiences, and tales of strength, hope, and courage in a world of sickness and death.

Kate Genovese has been a registered nurse for over 30 years. She has worked in the substance abuse field, with physically and sexually abused children, as well as school nursing for five years. Kate presently works for a visiting nurse association. Her other books, Loving Joe Gallucci and Two Weeks Since My Last Confession are also available in print and ebook formats.
