Rita Batchley RN: The Nurses' Nurse

Rita Batchley is not your ordinary RN. She is a teacher, author and speaker who believes that nurses hold the key to real health care reform.  Since graduating from nursing school over 25 years ago, Nurse Batchley has helped to deliver more than 3,000 babies and now, in her breakout novel Labor Pains, she delivers a gripping story that breathes life into the spirit of nursing. When Rita’s father was dying, and his nurse called her from a hospital 3,000 miles away, to let him speak to her one last time, she saw that when someone shows they care, higher laws intercede and grant miracles beyond our imagination. Forever changed, by one nurse's act of kindness, the idea to write Labor Pains was born.
