It Won't Hurt a Bit : Nursing Tales from the Swinging Sixties Paperback



When Jane Yeadon decided that she wanted to become a nurse, the Swinging Sixties had arrived in style.

But before her training the nearest she got to anything swinging was the udder of the cow on their farm in the north-east of Scotland.

It was time to leave for the bright lights and some modern life. "It Won't Hurt a Bit" is the story of Jane's journey from the farm she loved and the schoolwork she hated through to her nurse training and the many adventures along the way.

It's a warm, funny and affectionate memoir from a simpler time as Jane and her new friends tackle the ups and downs of a gruelling three-year training, some scary matrons and a variety of challenging patients and their relatives.

All to the backdrop of the fabulous Swinging Sixties.
