Description

Nurses, now more than ever, are the backbone of the healthcare system, the first line in providing the best possible care for all patients. Often, nursing demands technical expertise; sometimes, as these stories reveal, patients also need something more basic: a hand to hold, or someone to listen closely. Being on the front lines of medicine requires empathy, fortitude, knowledge, and grace. The stories collected here reveal nurses at all stages of their careers-passionate, terrified, sometimes simply exhausted-as they take on one of the most challenging and underappreciated jobs in the world. Book jacket.
