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.
My Review: Nursing humour can be dark and twisted at times but that’s what it takes to get through some truly horrific days especially now. This is a light, funny insightful look at the way we nurses handle the bizarre and oftentimes unimaginable situations that is our working day. I could relate to each post and I laughed out loud. This is the perfect gift for any nurse in your life.
