Inspiration for Nurses - Amy Newmark and LeAnn Thieman

About the Book:

Becoming a nurse is a calling—it’s a tough job but a rewarding one. This collection of 101 heartwarming stories will encourage, inspire, and reassure you that your patients and their families appreciate your compassionate service.

Every nurse can use a little pick-me-up these days, and this collection of personal stories will remind you why you became a nurse. All types of nurses share their experiences, their emotions, and even some great tips that will help you make a difference in the lives of patients and their families.






My Thoughts:

While I was reading this book, I kept thinking of our Hutterite nurses - there are only a few at this point, but they're working in local hospitals, making a difference, putting in long hours ensuring that their patients get good care, like so many other dedicated people in this profession. Like each Chicken Soup book, this is a collection of stories, most of them about people touched by the kindness of nurses. Having had loved ones in hospitals, I could relate with some of the stories, as I too have seen nurses tirelessly but lovingly tending to people in their care. This would make a fitting gift for a nurse in your life - a beautiful reminder how much she/he is appreciated.
