Learning How to Save Lives

As the United States faces a growing shortage of nurses, Scott Allen of the Boston Globe began looking at what it takes to train a new nurse. The result of his enterprising reporting is a masterful four-part series, "Critical Care: the Making of an ICU Nurse." Allen uses a narrative approach to take us behind the scenes at Massachusetts General Hospital, showing us the difficult work and critical decisions nurses make on a constant basis. The human drama makes this article read like a novel. Michele McDonald's photographs are equally as gripping.
