  A Nurse's Journey

  PASSION: The Secret Ingredient         of a Fulfilled Life as a Nurse                 by Aura Casabar, BSN, RN, CCM

Several years ago, I caught myself watching reruns of Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, a reality cooking show of a very animated, award-winning chef who went around Great Britain, France, and the US  attempting to salvage restaurants from the brink of bankruptcy or closure.
