Much-Needed Inspiration for Nurses in Today’s Healthcare Environment
101 stories of wisdom and appreciation, because they deserve it
COS COB, Conn. – Sharon Hinton was assigned to care for a young comatose patient, talking to him
throughout her 12-hour shifts. When he woke after months in a “twilight sleep,” he revealed that during that time there was one voice that provided him comfort and relief: his nurse’s voice. Sharon’s voice. After his father’s death from cancer, Alioune Kotey felt the calling to become a registered nurse, to give others the kind of care and comfort he gave his father in those last painful days. When a patient who reminded him of his father arrived in his ward, Al’s emotions bubbled to the surface. He allowed himself a moment to cry before pushing through and returning to care for his patient. Al was thrilled to learn months later that his patient’s cancer had gone into remission.
These are two of the 101 moving and inspirational stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses (Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing, LLC; Amy Newmark and LeAnn Thieman; July 21, 2015, 978-1-61159-948-0, $14.95). Most nurses didn’t choose their careers because of great hours, pay and working conditions! They felt a calling, and this book celebrates them—for the patients they heal, the lives they touch, and the fortitude with which they work long shifts, selflessly nurturing others with their hands and their hearts.
These stories provide an inside look at the kind of compassion, intelligence and humor it takes to be a nurse in today’s healthcare system. As LeAnn Thieman, a former nurse and the coauthor of the book says, “These days, things seem to be getting harder and harder in health care, and staying positive andmotivated can be a real challenge. In this book you will find inspiration to keep on caring.”
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Nurses will make you laugh, cry, and nod your head in
recognition as one hundred nurses, and some grateful patients too, share their funniest, most surprising,
and most moving stories about nursing today. It’s the perfect way to say “Thank You” to a special nurse,
or “Welcome” to a new nurse who has joined your team or just graduated from school. LeAnn Thieman
and Chicken Soup for the Soul have come up with another winning prescription for nurses—a book that’s
sure to inspire future generations of nurses and become a bestseller, just as their first two books for nurses
did in 2001 and 2007.
