The book skips over the three year hospital-based training that would have preceded the young nurses' enlistment. That alone would have been interesting reading. In the late 1960s, nurses still tended to be "trained" in such diploma programs, rather than "educated" at colleges and universities. Hospital-based diploma programs required student nurses to live in dormitories on the hospital grounds and basically used them as cheap labor, running the hospital on evening and night shifts after their school day ended.
Very much like Coffee, Tea, or Me?, Tender Loving Care provides a zany, madcap peek at the follies and frolics of young nurses on an air force base. As a representation of the genre, it's above average. As a representation of literature ... well ... never mind. LOL
