Unit price per 

Nurse and midwife Prue Wheelwright has worked in the most remote parts of Australia and around the world. In isolated, far-flung locations and on dangerous frontlines, this passionate and dedicated nurse has put her heart, and often her safety, on the line, day after day, year after year.

Prue shares all the challenges, the joys and the heartbreaks in her life as a travelling nurse, from working in outback Australia to developing a pediatric HIV project in Tajikistan, setting up a 24-hour maternity hospital in an Ethiopian refugee camp and working with the Saudi royal family. Most recently she has joined the Royal Flying Doctor Service, combining her love of travel, adventure and healthcare.

In her work Prue has witnessed the extremes of humanity: the extraordinary highs and devastating lows. A highly skilled nurse with a huge heart, Prue will inspire you and move you with her tales of life at its most raw and real.
