This book carries a message of hope and life to nurses in a troubled and challenging profession. It is the power boost every nurse needs today. Readers experience the real reason behind the nurse's behavior: Caring. Why and how do we care? Do we care enough? How can we keep on caring? Where is the Source of Caring? Readers embark on this exciting journey through the life of the nurse: her joys, sorrows, achievements, and crosses. They visit the nurse's mysterious dimension of faith. They laugh and cry, and become inspired and refreshed. Some will be inspired to study Nursing, others will try to be better nurses, while yet others will decide to stay in Nursing even longer. There is something for everyone: a taste of what really matters in Nursing, Caring.
