The Shift tells the story of one nurse’s 12-hour shift. Brown gives those who have never walked in a nurse’s shoes the opportunity to experience the fears, hopes, and realities of life during one 12-hour shift for an oncology nurse. Each chapter provides a look at the life-changing decisions made by the nurse for her 4 patients hour by hour. Brown does not sugarcoat the story, but does show the central role a nurse plays in patient care.
