Bedpans and Backrubs: The Trials and Joys of a Student Nurse is the story of Marilyn Minter Wolgemuth's journey through nursing school in the early 1950s. Told through the lens of Marilyn's journal entries and letters, readers experience her personal story of growth through the trials, tribulations, and ultimate joys of nursing school while getting a serious and sometimes comical glimpse into how much has changed in nursing and the health care setting in general. You will laugh and cry with Marilyn as you read about her education milestones on the path to the nursing career she dreamed of since she was 11 years old.
