Learn Practical Strategies to Grow Professionally

Nursing is most likely the most compassionate profession as nurses strive to provide compassionate and competent care for their patients. Nurses often get buried under an ever-growing workload, stresses, and constant changes. Even in the midst of workplace stress and demands, some nurses are about to stand out as they rise to a hero level.  How do they do it?

In this book you will explore ten hero powers -- behaviors that distinguish hero nurses from the rest. You’ll read heartwarming stories of real nurses who demonstrate each behavior.  These nurses truly represent the art and science of nursing and are role models for others.  We are confident you can be a role model too.  This book is meant to provide inspiration and practical tips to help you become more heroic in your practice and to inspire you to believe you make a difference.  Being a hero is a choice.
