Thirty-three nurses from twenty-six states share their stories…
In 33 Nurses: Insight, Inspiration, and Stories from the Field, you’ll read touching stories shared with heartfelt honesty. Nurses describe their unique paths to the nursing profession, recount the most challenging and most rewarding aspects of their careers, and offer advice to fellow nurses for thriving in their essential roles.

Created in celebration of the World Health Organization’s International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife and in honor of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, this book pays tribute to the compassion, dedication, and service of nurses everywhere.
This timely book is a precious contribution, calling your attention to the inner life work and world of nurses and nursing … Each story, each moment, is a testimony to professional nurses and their heart of wisdom, compassion, love, and service, transcending panic and pandemics alike, a gift of helping us all to find solace while everything else is spinning turmoil all around.Jean Watson, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN, LL (AAN), award-winning author, founder of the Watson Caring Science Institute, and Distinguished Professor of Nursing
Thank you for creating this beautiful collection of nurses’ stories. This book validated the feelings of my own experiences, thoughts, ambitions, concerns, challenges, and rewards in my career as a nurse. I wish I had read something like this when I first started my career. I also wish I could have given this book to every student, new graduate, and new hire I ever precepted.Emmi Mooney, retired RN
