For the month of March I am recommending and reviewing: I Wasn’t Strong Like This When I Started Out: True Stories of Becoming a Nurse. This book contains narratives from nurses experiences with their first birth, first patient death and first injections. You will find yourself either as a student, novice nurse or experienced nurse relating to these stories and feeling all the emotions as you read this amazing book. This book makes you appreciate the raw and terrifying experiences that nurses face on a daily basis and the compassion and love we have for our patients. Even if you are not a nurse this book is great for anybody in the medical field who wants a perspective of what a nurse deals with and how we impact the medical field. This book would make a great gift to yourself, a nursing student and even somebody contemplating entering the nursing field. This book is a quick read and something I know I will pick up again to re-read in the future.
If you have any recommendations for a book I would love to hear them! Have you read this book? What did you think about it? Leave a comment below!
