Nursing Jambalaya with Gumbo on the Side

Nurses Speak Out

By Jacqueline Spencer, RN
Lynell Whittington-Brignac, RN
and Beverly S. Ward, RN

This is an important little book. Written by longtime nursing veterans, it gives insight to the realities of nursing from those who know firsthand.

In response to the media and TV shows, these dedicated professionals wanted to share their stories and various aspects of nursing. Along with patient advocacy and bedside care, nurses today are involved in public outreach and education, and also research.

Jacqueline Spencer has been a nursing professional for over thirty years. This is her third book. Lynell Whittington-Brignac has been in medical/surgical and psychiatric nursing for thirty years. Beverly S. Ward has spent over thirty years in clinical nursing, and now is an educator.

Each of these dedicated professionals brings a unique perspective to this educational and entertaining book.


  1. Well the title certainly caught my attention! Thanks for the info and review to this book! Might get it for my sister - she's just qualified as a nurse! Take care

  2. Sounds like a spicy mix which nursing is wont to be. I am sure it is a good read because no two nursing tales are alike and they are all full of drama and compasion. Thanks for this review ... sounds like a good read.


  3. How do you find books like this one?
