Author Biography

Once I decided that I would become a nurse, I had to decide what kind of nurse I wanted to be. Nursing has so many opportunities, which is so wonderful. As a career speaker, I often try to share about many of these different areas. I wrote my books to share with those that I may not have the opportunity to speak with. I want the younger generation to know that Nursing is a great profession to consider for their future.

Adventures in Nursing is a book series that introduce the younger generation to the many career opportunities available to them. I have always been told that my story is inspiring so I share my personal journey in becoming a nurse and life lessons I learned along the way.

I am a US Army Veteran, a Mom, and have been a Registered Nurse since 2006. I am now a newly self-published author. I graduated from Louisiana Tech University, University of Arkansas Little Rock, and University of Central Arkansas. I hold a Masters of Science degree in Nursing and have been a Nurse Educator since 2017. I have been ANCC Nationally certified in Medical-Surgical Nursing since 2012. My nursing experience is in MEDSURG, cardiology, neurology/neurosurgery, critical care, and nursing education.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Diana Lopez for Readers' Favorite

Adventures in Nursing is an informative book. LaQuana Smith divides the material into three main parts. She begins by telling the story of how she chose to study nursing and the lessons she learned in the process. LaQuana also talks about how she planned her available time and how she made the most of it. She then explains several areas of nursing and finally adds motivational activities, so readers can think about their goals and how to reach them. LaQuana has experience in medical-surgical nursing, cardiology, neurology, neurosurgery, critical care, and nursing education. She is highly qualified to explain these topics and does it most entertainingly. The book is motivational as it teaches that you can achieve any goal if you work hard and give your best.

I liked LaQuana Smith’s story because of its sincerity. She explains that, at first, she did not know what to study. The resulting insecurity is something that many young people feel, but she describes how she overcame the obstacles and gives sound advice to readers. She also talks about how to have realistic expectations and find the confidence to believe in yourself. Everything is explained in detail. The section on nursing specialties has basic descriptions, but they are a great reference to explore all study possibilities, which is why I think Adventures in Nursing is an important book. It can be stressful for a young person to decide which career to choose, so it is advisable to expand the search based on their interests.
