Cherry Ames is back, just as you remember her! The books are just as you remember them, retaining the same look, feel, and sense of adventure and patriotism as when they were first published. With fully illustrated color covers and a soft-finished hardcover format just like the originals, these books will transport you back to the days when you were reading about this spunky young nurse. Series editor and registered nurse Harriet Forman was inspired by, and remains a devoted fan of, Cherry Ames: "...I was going to follow in her footsteps and become a nurse--nothing else would do.". In Student Nurse , Cherry starts nursing school at Spencer with a mixture of anxiety and anticipation - would she have what it takes to be a nurse? She leaves her quiet town of Hilton, Illinois for the bustle of hospital life, to meet challenges she wouldn't have imagined. The U.S. is at war. Many nurses have gone to the front, and there is a shortage of RNs at Spencer-which Cherry and her classmates help to fill, as they learn the skills they need to graduate. And who is the mysterious patient in the secret room that no one seems to know anything about? Should Cherry risk expulsion to save his life?. Springer Publishing Company is delighted to be bringing Helen Wells's beloved heroine back into print for a new generation of younger readers (as well as a host of nostalgic older ones). The books are available as beautifully rendered facsimile hardcover editions and in boxed sets of four. We intend to have all of the Helen Wells books back in print by early 2008.

Cherry Ames, Why I Went Into Nursing
By prisrob "pris," - April 15, 2005
Cherry Ames, the, slim black eyed, black haired, beauty who introduced me into the realm of nursing. I was a 9 year old avid reader, when I was given my first Cherry Ames book. She did it all, student nurse, senior nurse, cruise ship nurse, public health nurse and on and on. She was the epitome of a glamorous woman who could do no wrong.
Cherry Ames, had a twin brother, Charles, He was as fair as she was dark, but he was tall as she was. They were both very intelligent and lived in Hilton. They had wonderfully kind and intelligent parents who loved them. We all had loving parents, but they could never measure up to the Ames.
Cherry graduated from high school, and as she always knew she would, she went to Spencer School of Nursing. She met her new classmates and fell into the study routines. She wore her blue and white striped uniform proudly. She met the doctors. They were never to be argued with and always addressed with respect. The professors of nursing were... read more
THE FIRST IN THE CHERRY AMES SERIES
By J. WILLIAMS "book loving RN" - November 29, 2009
I never read these books growing up, but wish that I had. The first book in the Cherry Ames series is delightful. It follows Cherry as she leaves home and goes away to nursing school.The setting of this book is pre-WW2 ,and I found it charming and simplistic. Being an RN for many years now, it was fascinating to discover what nursing students of the time were taught. The friendships that Cherry forms in this book, last throughtout the entire 20 book series. I highly recommend this book, as well as the entire series.

My mother bought a copy of Cherry Ames Student Nurse for me when I was a pre-teen. I suppose she was hoping it would inspire me to go into nursing. I had long lost that copy, but found another here on Amazon, which I just had to have for my personal library. The book brings back good memories and I'm sure inspired many to go into the nursing profession. The book follows young Cherry as she starts nursing school and gives the reader a look into what it takes to become a nurse. I highly recommend it for pre-teens and teenagers who are thinking about going into that field of work.
