What happened to the fun-loving girl we met in Ooh Matron! #RPBP

As regular readers will know, book 2 in The Nomadic Nurse Series had a quiet launch in February this year and this September sees the official launch of both the digital and paperback formats (with audio coming soon).
This is an exciting month filled with book signings, book fairs, giveaways and price promotions to spread the news about this new nursing memoir which has a slightly different twist on it. 

Is Sarah Jane playing with fire?

What happened to the fun-loving girl we met in Ooh Matron! Who almost by accident entered the world of nursing after leaving school? 
Sarah Jane's life is set to be turned upside down as she juggles the pursuit of her nursing career with the roles of wife and mother. Her nursing career deviates off course into the aged care sector to accommodate her personal life and calls for a variety of sacrifices and compromises to keep a career and family life on track. It's a journey that sees Sarah Jane dealing with childbirth, bereavement, divorce, miscarriage and child custody issues at the hands of a real life Casanova!

Check out latest 5* review for
Bedpans to Boardrooms 

"While autobiographical books are not my usual genre, I thoroughly enjoyed Sarah-Jane's account of nursing in Care Homes.
Being an ex-nurse it brought back many happy memories for myself as, during my career, I also looked after the elderly although in a hospital situation.
Her accuracy and explanations of various procedures are spot on. You feel for her in her personal life but she has overcome all tribulations and come out smiling at the other end.
Altogether a very good read"

*****Award Winning Nurse Memoir*****
I am not sure what Florence Nightingale would have made of Sarah Jane! The story starts with a sixteen-year-old country girl who, for no apparent reason at the time, suddenly decided that she wanted to be a nurse.

Sarah Jane was entering adulthood with no obvious career path in sight. She had planned a traditional, some would say old fashioned, future. Her vision was to leave school, find a job in a local store, get married and eventually have children. Then everything changed, as she embarked on a journey which would help to map out her future by offering opportunities in a variety of places and healthcare settings. Find out how Sarah Jane deals with births, deaths and everything in between with laughter, tears and humility in this touching, sometimes heartrending, superbly written memoir. 

‘Ooh Matron!’ is the first book in The Nomadic Nurse Series. Each book in the series takes you on a journey through medical specialisms and environments that formed part of Sarah Jane’s nursing career. Throughout the series Sarah Jane uses her trademark honest and entertaining writing style to share insights into her thoughts, reflections and the changes in her personal life and circumstances as she moves forward in her career.
