Hello to all,
I have read almost all of Echo Heron's books (fiction and non-fiction) in addition to "Nurse" by Peggy Anderson. These were excellent books written by great nurses/authors on their experiences as nurses in critical care units. Reading books like this confirmed that a career in nursing is what I needed to make my life complete. None of the horror stories in these books scared me; on the contrary, it motivated me even more to pursue a second career in this glorious profession we call nursing.
As an avid reader/bookworm
, I am always on the lookout for new books written by nurses about nursing. I encourage nurses to write books like Heron and Anderson did. We need more of these fantastic books. Since these books talk about nursing in the 70's and 80's, it would be great to read about nursing experiences in the 90's and 2000's. I especially like stories that begin from nursing school and they progress through the nurses career.
Does anyone know of any interesting nursing books to recommend? I just purchased a book called "Where Have All the Nurses Gone" by Faye Satterly, R.N. Interesting topic since it talks about the nursing shortage today on how it has impacted American healthcare. I look forward to reading this book after I finish "Fatal Diagnosis" by Echo Heron. I just found "Fatal Diagnosis", an out of print book, at Amazon
Bring those book recommendations on........ Nothing in the world makes me happy than to know I have a great book waiting to be read.
