Summary

This sequel to Hurry Up Nurse: Memoirs of Nurse Training in the 1970s follows the author to London in 1980. Here, she takes up further nurse training at a hospital in the heart of the capital’s east end. The author moves into a nurses’ home, so expect some antics as she and her newfound friends settle in.

Hurry Up Nurse 2: London Calling is another charming medical biography that includes humor and compassion as you would expect from this author. There is a lot of nursing and medical history to pack in, as the experiences are set in a hospital specializing in heart and chest surgery. Cancer chemotherapy is in its infancy, open heart surgery is fast becoming routine, and tuberculosis is ever-present in the east end, so there’s a lot to learn. Added to all of this is the inquiring mind of a young nurse who, having been told to avoid the hospital God-squad, does the exact opposite. There are some lovable characters in this audiobook, from the charming Mr. Robinson, who sees potential in this lively young woman now aged 21, to the energetic Mrs. Chang, the girls in the nurses’ home, the night porter, and, of course, the patients who touch all of their lives.

Enjoyable Listen

Hurry Up Nurse 2: London Calling By: Dawn Brookes I listened to Dawn Brooks first book "Hurry Up Nurse." I found it quite entertaining, so I knew I wanted to listen to this second book about her nursing career. This picks up where the first one left off, with the continuing of her training. This book had laugh out loud moments, tear jerking, and just plain entertaining moments. I felt like I learned a thing or two as well. Thanks for sharing your story!!! The narration was well done. Emma Jordan did an excellent job of telling Dawn's story. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Educational

This book had me in tears of laughter, tears of joy, and tears of sorrow. Some of the stories were hard to hear but others were happy! I could hardly handle when they talked about the spit cups!! Over all it was educational on how things ran at that time along with a great storyline.

Satisfy your curiosity !

I listened to Dawns' first book and was hooked ! I always wanted to be a Nurse when I was growing up and now have had the chance thanks to her candid stories narrated so wonderfully by Emma Jordan. Fingers crossed that there will be "Hurry up Nurse 3" !!!
