Nice view of Army nurses' training in world War II. Not as exhaustive as the descriptions of training in "Student Nurse." Cherry is almost a "Mary Sue," but gets into enough trouble to prevent being too perfect. A pleasant entry in the series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0977159728, Hardcover)

In Army Nurse, Cherry has made the difficult decision facing all her classmates - should she enlist in the military or practice nursing on the homefront? She's graduated from Spencer and earned the right to put "RN" after her name, and as an Army nurse, she is now "Lieutenant Ames." The Army nurses are also soldiers, and endure a grueling basic training under the harsh Sergeant Deake (whom Cherry nicknames "Lovey," much to his chagrin). No one knows where the Spencer unit will be deployed until they are shipped off without warning - to Panama City. Who is the mysterious old Indian whom Cherry and her corpsman Bunce find collapsed in an abandoned house? He is obviously very ill, but with what? Can Dr. Joe's newly developed serum help?

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:49:21 -0400)

When she and her classmates in Spencer Hospital's nurses training program enthusiastically sign up for the Army Nurse Corps, Cherry Ames soon finds herself in Panama and struggling her way through army regulations.
