Written by a clinical nurse specialist in a modern-day cancer hospital, Tales From Pager Chronicles are the stories of patients and interactions. The common thread is the pager that takes the author from one patient to the next on her daily rounds. She tells the stories of 32 different encounters with patients, families, and colleagues, which describe the complex caring of nursing.
