What a joy Just a story or two when you re feeling discouraged I learned a lot about nursing and am very impressed with the personal commitment that nurses possess. Really enjoyed this and found it inspiring than anticipated I do, however, wish that a greater variety of nurses were represented, rather than mostly working for the same handful ish number of employers Overall, though, this was a great book. This is quite an eye opener The nursing profession has far avenues one can travel than I ever knew Nurses on reservations, nurses who drive for hours into the country to deliver care to the elderly, helicopter flying nurses, on and on it goes You meet some nurses who went from bedside care to teaching the intricacies of nursing to new students I learned a great deal from this book Nurses long to help others They are full of compassion and empathy Some of them are detail oriented and prefer to get into the political aspect of it Some even develop new technologies because the old ones are not working effectively enough I love books with mini bio compilations I always learn a lot from them It s kind of like reading 50 biographies at once A really lovely book.
