"These stories cannot help but touch the hearts and souls of all who read it, nurses or not. The authors have done nursing a wonderful service by bringing to light the touching, funny, heartfelt anecdotes shared by those at the bedside." -Sally Russell, M.N., R.N. , Educational Director Academy of Medical Surgical Nurses This collection of true stories champions the daily contributions, commitments and sacrifices of nurses and portrays the compassion, intellect and wit necessary to meet the challenging demands of the profession. Stories from student nurses recall why they entered the profession; stories from seasoned nurses reveal why they stay, and some stories reflect on the "good old days." Most important, as every fan of the series knows, each story shares hope for the future. Regardless of age or area of practice, health-care workers the world over will find their own hearts and souls in these stories as they discover the universality of what they do-and the power of their skillful hands and devoted hearts.

    great. we can pick up ideas that makes nursing more of a vocation rather than as a profession.

    these books are always a great inspiration and an uplifting way to enourage yourself.. i have read a few and i enjoyed them and the cool thing is they have sections to write notes or how you feel about something and whenever you get down about it then you can turn back pick yourself back up.. i think that is great/

    It inspired and continues to inspire me to touch peoples lives and be the best nurse that I can be. I could help but ball with most of the stories. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because it doesn't come with complimentary kleenex!

    Great short stories that make all nurses remember why we went into nursing. The stories can make you smile, laugh,and even some stories can cause you to reflect of your own nursing experiences. This is just a feel good book when you are feeling down or discouraged. Some of the stories can even boost your nursing confidence; by reminding us all we are human.

    Prior to reading this book, I could count on one hand the number of times I've cried since I turned 18...but nearly ever story in this book made me either cry or laugh. Without being the least bit preachy, this book manages to be both inspirational and humbling, reminding us all why we got into the profession, what keeps us in it despite all the stress and hardships, and why it is important stop stop and remember those things.

    As nurses we deal with so much and so many everyday. We think we are the only one going through things so I't's always good to know we are not alone and that we are indeed, "angels".
