Asides from imparting us with knowledge, reading books also help us to relax. Here are five books by nurses that you should add to your summer reading list:
Christie Watson's book, “The Language of Kindness: A Nurse’s Story,” is a reminder of the importance of compassion in our lives. It highlights the unsung heroes of healthcare, the Nurses who provide vital care and kindness through the smallest of actions. The book is a collection of true narratives that reflect the dynamism and diversity of Nurses. It covers nearly seventy years of practice from World War II to the present day. The extraordinary situations described here are the result of more than 1,000 years of hands-on bedside knowledge. The book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the importance of compassion in healthcare.
This classic novel tells the story of Randle Patrick McMurphy, a rebellious patient at a mental institution. Ratched is the head nurse at the institution, and she is determined to keep her patients under control. McMurphy challenges Ratched's authority at every turn, and the two of them engage in a battle of wills. This book is a powerful exploration of the power dynamics between patients and their caregivers.
Rich Bluni’s book, “Inspired Nurse,” is a thought-provoking workbook that reminds Nurses and all healthcare employees why they chose this profession. It provides so much in terms of action-oriented “spiritual stretches” to help readers properly integrate the benefits of Nursing such as joy, wonder, gratitude, insight, and grief into their lives. The book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the importance of self-care in healthcare.
This book begins its story in May 1971. Look magazine wrote a story about a very bad hospital in Chicago. The hospital was in a scary place where gangs and drugs were common. According to the story, the hospital might shut down soon. After the story came out, the writer, who was a young student from a safe place, and many other students went to learn nursing at that hospital, ignoring the information from the news article. It should be an exciting read, especially if you are a nurse in training.
