Our secret patients will access healthcare on different days of the week and at different times of the day.  This assessment will provide vital feedback on the health of every aspect of your practice or obstetrics unit from the phone call to make the initial appointment, to the process of checking in, seeing the doctor, and leaving your office. It will invoke emergency situations that your staff will need to respond to. Are they prepared? It will evaluate the everyday processes of your practice to provide you with feedback on what works and where there's room for growth.

“Talonda presents a compelling discussion about the benefits of a career in nursing while providing students with a roadmap for success when starting nursing school!”

                          —Nancy K. Haughton MSN, RN, Former Director of Practical Nursing Chester County Intermediate Unit Practical Nursing Program

“I found this book to be an easy read almost right away. It kept me interested, as it was written from the standpoint of an individual who, though well educated, speaks plainly and very clearly. There are times when Talonda Rogers is humorous at the same time she’s making a point, keeping you interested. On the technical aspects of the read, she is spot-on in her suggestions and knowledge of what a student will undoubtedly go through while getting their degree. She covers everything from her own history and why she chose to go to nursing school to what to do with that nursing education. I only wish that I had this book as a primary source of my education. I feel it would have been an enormous help in knowing what was to come as opposed to learning on the fly. I enthusiastically recommend this read to anyone contemplating a calling/career in nursing.”

                         —Willard N. Carpenter, LPN, Retired, Author, Writer, “One of the Men of Amish Fiction,” Journalist, The Boyertown Bulletin

“Beautifully written and highly encouraging. Talonda opens her book by giving her readers a glimpse of her personal struggles. She then maps out a step-by-step guide that enables the nursing student success from start to finish. This awe-inspiring book is a tool for every nursing student.”

                                                                                                                                                                                            —L’Tanya Taylor MSN, RN

“Nursing School: What I Learned May Make Your Life Easier! by Talonda Rogers, MSN, RN, is an excellent book written about a topic that is often overlooked, but desperately needs to be addressed. It gives a realistic view of the struggles nursing students experience both inside and outside of the classroom. It is packed with practical ways to facilitate a nursing student’s success. The suggestions are holistic, encompassing physical, psychosocial, economic, and spiritual areas. Although the focus is on nursing students, the information can be applied to many other rigorous academic programs as well as the general well-being of those not enrolled in school. So many times, we incorrectly believe that students innately know how to succeed; this book gives them the tools not only to pass but to thrive. I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering an education in nursing.”

                                                                                                                                                  —Michele R. Carpenter MSN, RN, Nurse Educator

“Throughout this text, Talonda Rogers gives tangible tips on how to succeed in nursing school, along with personal stories about becoming a nurse. She outlines the different levels of nursing and the process involved in becoming a nurse to help her audience explore if nursing should be a career choice. The book is loaded with resources nursing students will find useful to succeed in their nursing school path. If you or someone you know is interested in a nursing career, I encourage you to read this book. It will help determine if nursing is for you and assist in making the nursing school journey a little less challenging. Every nursing student should have a copy of this book as a valuable resource to navigate their way through nursing school.”
