Nola the Nurse® Remembers Hurricane Katrina

This special edition of Nola the Nurse®, published as the people of New Orleans mark the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, honors an event that changed the lives of so many. Nola vividly shares the details of the worst natural disaster to ever hit the United States as her mother told it to her. Her dolls and other toys are instantly transformed as she tells the story of how her mother and Dr. Baker, both nurse practitioners, came back to New Orleans to provide care to many storm victims.

Nola the Nurse: She’s On the Go, Vol. 1

“Nola liked going to work with her mother. Sometimes they went to a home to visit a sick patient. There she could watch the nurse practitioner and other helpers look after sick people. They were trying to make them better. When she grew up she wanted to be a nurse practitioner just like her mommy.”

“Dr. Baker, thank you for your awesome book – Nola the Nurse: She’s on the Go. I love the way you highlight the nurse practitioner role in a children’s book; I have not seen a children’s book that goes into advance practice nursing roles. This is going to go a long way in advancing the profession for the next generation. I see it is volume 1, can’t wait to see where Nola goes next.” – Grammy by 6
