REVIEW: What It Means to Be a Nurse by Snarkynurses
A lighthearted, inspiring, and timely look at the daily challenges and triumphs nurses face—all while reminding nurses exactly why they continue to work on the frontline.
Being a nurse is not an easy task. From the endless hours battling COVID-19 to an often-times stressful work environment to those delightful patients who always insist they somehow know more than the medical professionals helping them—RNs everywhere know the struggle.
What It Means to Be a Nurse takes an amusing look at some of the challenges these medical professionals face on a daily basis. Adding a laugh-out-loud spin that is both entertaining and relatable, this must-have book reminds nurses exactly why they love their hospitals, doctors, and patients, even on the tough days. With a heaping helping of humor and love, this book shares the inspiring and heartwarming stories that show us all why nurses are our heroes.
I’ve read and reviewed several books about doctors but not as many about nurses. Several of my best friends are or were nurses (and one has a daughter about to graduate from nursing school) so I decided to check out what you had to say. The book is like a condensed version of inspirational posters or what you might find on mugs or notepaper but as someone who has been on the receiving end of a pain medication, I can attest to how hard working and caring nurses are. Also, all my nurse friends are funny, witty, and good looking. ;) Thank you nurses for all that you do. B
