Pro-Nursing Book

Check out: Nursing Against the Odds: How Health Care Cost Cutting, Media Stereotypes, and Medical Hubris Undermine Nurses and Patient Care, by Suzanne Gordon. Ms. Gordon, a journalist, co-authored the book that sparked my interest in moving the nursing profession forward: From Silence to Voice: What Nurses Know and Must Communicate to the Public. In her latest book, Ms. Gordon re-visits some of the same themes from Silence to Voice, and looks at how various factors contribute to "undermining nurses and patient care." This is a must-read for any nurse who cares about making positive changes within our profession.
