My Hero, My Dad, The Nurse is a colorful children's book about a little boy who ponders different career choices, but decides that he wants to follow his dad's example, and become a nurse. In this book, adults as well as children are introduced to the idea that nursing is a rewarding career that is not gender specific. Nursing is a career choice full of opportunities for men and women. My Hero, My Dad The Nurse is based on the expertise and research of its author, Dr. Maggie Thurmond Dorsey, RN.

The vivid illustrations in this book are provided by Mr. Lorenzo Williams, an accomplished artist and art teacher. The illustrations capture the range of the little boy's animations from his sadness as he deals with his classmates' jeering: "You can't be a nurse, you're a boy" to his enthusiasm and pride when he presents to his class, "My Hero, My Dad The Nurse."

Ron and Kim were very close, and her devastation was compounded by the shocking not guilty verdict that allowed a smirking Simpson to leave as a free man. It wasn't Kim's first trauma. Her parents divorced when she was young, and she and Ron were raised by their father. Her mother kidnapped her, telling her that her father didn't love her any more. When she was 14, she was almost blinded from severe battery acid burns on her face during an automobile accident, requiring three reconstructive surgeries. But none of these early traumas compared to the loss of her brother, the painful knowledge that his killer was free, and fact that she could not even grieve privatelyher grief was made painfully public.

Most five-year-olds want to be firefighters, astronauts, doctors, nurses, police officers, chefs, animal doctors, but how many will actually stick to their childhood "dream"? At age five Milicent McCalla made a decision to become a nurse upon watching the "angel" nurse in the white uniform and cap care for her father in the hospital after a serious accident. As the nurse turned to leave the room, she touched Milicent on the head, and Milicent said in childlike innocence, "I am going to be a nurse like you." The nurse then said something that stuck with Milicent throughout her schooling: "You can become anything you wish as long as you study hard and keep your wishes alive." Milicent never wavered from accomplishing that dream, and after working as a registered nurse for thirty-four years in Jamaica, her native country, Canada, and the United States, she retired from a career specializing in oncology and medical-surgical nursing. With a flair for writing and humor, Milicent shares stories of her childhood, her schooling, her career, her father's wise sayings, and her faith in God in So This Is Nursing. To Milicent, caring for the sick and dying has always been her calling. And with God's help, she has done it to the best of her ability.
