About this title


25 nurses share their stories about
· Birth and death
· Victories and regrets
· Frustrations and hope
· What brought them to nursing
· What makes them stay
A prison nurse:
Walking back to the control bubble, I felt like a nurse in the Wild West, nursing on the edge. No longer shaky, I felt like a gun-slinging sheriff walking though town after killing an outlaw.
"Nursing in the Big House" - Sara Stassen

A home care and hospice nurse:
Suddenly I was possessed with the urge to literally turn my head to the sky and say, "If you let me keep my daughter I promise I'll give you something back." My desire to become a nurse had finally decided to announce itself.
"My Cosmic Uncle Sam" - Liza Leukhardt

In "We Must Speak Up," editor Karen Buley concludes with a call to action to combat the current nursing shortage.

Karen Buley, RN, BSN has been a nurse for thirty-one years. Her publishing credits include American Nurse Today, A Cup of Comfort for Nurses, Directions in Nursing, Family Circle, Holiday Voices, the Missoulian, Montana Voices, and Story Circle Journal.
