7 Summits: A Nurse's Quest to Conquer Mountaineering and Life Summary

7 Summits: A Nurse's Quest to Conquer Mountaineering and Life by John Patrick Hickey

Good stories can be very powerful and moving, especially when they include an emotional component. Telling an entertaining story is important, but bringing that personal component to the story makes it much better.

7 Summits: A Nurse's Quest to Conquer Mountaineering in Life is written by Dr. Patrick Hickey, the first nurse in the world to complete the 7 Summits of the World on his first attempt of each mountain. The publication encourages the reader to make major changes in his/her life by looking at life through the 7 Summits of Life.

7 Summits: A Nurse's Quest to Conquer Mountaineering in Life:

  • Utilizes stories to help students learn. Once students have a memorable story to help them remember a key theme or piece of information, they are much more capable of recalling that information when needed.
  • Includes blogs and quotes from fellow climbers and nurses during the author's 2 month climb up/down Mt. Everest.
  • Addresses the challenges in nursing, the nursing shortage, issues with retention, and the challenges that face student nurses. Estimates are that at least 75,000 qualified applicants in 2011 were turned away from admission to nursing schools due to an insufficient number of faculty, shortage of clinical sites, a lack of classroom space, minimal qualified preceptors for the clinical setting, and financial constraints of individual colleges.
  • Supports the Nurses Can Do Anything Scholarship established by Dr. Patrick Hickey in the Foundation of the National Student Nurses' Association (all author royalties are donated in support).
