Nurse Papa



In 16 thoughtful meditations, David Metzger, a father and a pediatric oncology nurse, describes the difficult, beautiful, and profound experience of caring for both his patients and his own young children.

Metzger brings in the voices of seasoned nurses, young patients, and his patients’ parents, each adding a perspective that helps guide him throughout his career. Equally powerful, he invites readers deep into his days, both the joyful and the painful. These experiences plus the familiar struggles and comic blunders of early parenthood result in a moving, sometimes hysterical, often sad, but always honest look at what it truly means to be a caregiver.

A unique perspective on the ins-and-outs of working in the medical field, Nurse Papa is not just a book for parents but for anyone who ponders life’s big questions.
