Neoisms is a book covering my 26 years of experience as a nurse...... from starting as a Licensed Practical Nurse to getting my degree and acute care nursing for 16 years. The last 10 years of my career were as an instructor for nursing..... I had come full circle. Neoisms are new words that make absolutely no sense that can be mistaken for true words. My neoisms are ones I created while teaching and are the 1st portion of my book. I also include some true stories of my nursing experiences, and tips I found to be helpful with patient care. Neoisms covers my experiences written with truth, humor, and some heart tugging moments. Susan Frech-Sims is an artist with an inate capability of capturing the essesnce of my thoughts and developing them into creative, fun illustrations of memories I will cherish for the rest of my life.
