'...aside from the murders , Charles Cullen might have been a pretty good nurse...' The true story of the most prolific serial killer in US history, The Good Nurse is 'a stunning book... that should and does bring to mind In Cold Blood' New York Times After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed 'The Angel of Death' by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favourite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history. Cullen's murderous career in the world's most trusted profession spanned sixteen years and nine hospitals across New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Investigative journalist Charles Graeber's portrait of Cullen depicts a surprisingly intelligent and complicated young man whose promising career was overwhelmed by his compulsion to kill, and whose shy demeanor masked a twisted interior life hidden even to his family and friends. Were it not for the hardboiled, unrelenting work of two former Newark homicide detectives racing to put together the pieces of Cullen's professional past, and a fellow nurse willing to put everything at risk, including her job and the safety of her children, there's no telling how many more lives could have been lost. In the tradition of In Cold Blood, The Good Nurse does more than chronicle Cullen's deadly career and the breathless efforts to stop him; it paints an incredibly vivid portrait of madness and offers an urgent, terrifying tale of murder, friendship and betrayal.

In Choosing a Good Nursing Home, Sherri L. Mitchell offers valuable insight in understanding the questions to ask to properly explore which nursing home can best meet the needs of your loved one. Choosing a Good Nursing Home enables you to see the facility from a different vantage point. It moves beyond the surface appearance of the home and looks at the areas that will aid you in making a knowledgeable decision. The book covers topics from what to look for in the initial tour of the facility, to knowing what questions to ask if your loved one has dementia, is in need of therapy, has weight loss problems or has pressure ulcers (bedsores). Choosing a Good Nursing Home allows you to make a more informed decision as to where to place your loved one, whether the stay will be for short-term rehabilitation or permanent placement. Sherri L. Mitchell began her career in nursing home administration after her grandmother received poor care in a nursing home. She subsequently became a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (L.N.H.A.) in the state of Illinois. She couples her previous experience as a granddaughter (of a nursing home resident) with her experience as an administrator to give you the needed perspective to assist you in selecting a good nursing home. Mitchell resides in Chicago, Illinois with her husband of eleven years. Visit her website at choosingagoodnursinghome.com

Nursing Ethics: Holistic Caring Practice explores the moral practice of nursing, asserting that there is an inherent moral sense in nursing practice itself. This new edition of the book requires one to reconsider what it means to be a nurse. Rather than someone who merely applies ethical thinking and ethical models of decision making in nursing practice, the nurse is a moral being who is engaged in a moral practice.

Chicago singularly honored nurses, our "Angels of Mercy," for a decade (1949-1958). Father Clarence M. Brissette O.S.M., director of the Sorrowful Mother Novena, originated both Chicago's "Nurses Day" and Chicago's Nurse Parade in 1949. The purpose of the parade was twofold: to give the nurses a "day of glory" and to also encourage others to join this undermanned, noble, and caring profession. The first Chicago Nurse Parade (1949) had two floats, four bands, and included many nurses marching in capes. The 10-year anniversary parade (1958) had 4,000 marching uniformed nurses, over 30 bands, and over 100 decorated floats representing nearly all Chicagoland hospitals and schools of nursing. In 1958, over 100,000 spectators lined Jackson Boulevard to honor nurses in what would be the final parade.
