This was the best book I have ever read. I could relate as a nurse with a relatively new disability. The book was filled with humor, inspiration, and was extremely informative.

I will be buying this book for all of my favorite nurses. I read and enjoyed Echo Herons book titled Tending Lives, however Leave No Nurse Behind topped it. Donna Maheady should be on the New York Times Bestseller with this one.

A wonderful and informative read. I have spent my career working for people with disabilities and I am also a Nurse. This book is not just for those with nursing backgrounds or aspirations; it gives information about coping with a disability that could be used in any occupation. I loved it........Jeanne Penney

This is really a wonderful book, and not just for nurses. Each chapter is a vignette from a real nurse with real life health problems; like a mini-biography and a resolution as to how the nurse deals with the illness or disability and continues to work in nursing. Most people can relate to having a chronic health problem and holding a job. The stories are inspiring, funny, and remind us all how important a positive attitude is to a successful and happy life. Nurses especially should read this book about their colleagues; whether a nurse is healthy or not, his/her coworker may be dealing with issues that affect the workplace. More than an academic book, this is a real-life story book about some very inspiring people who, in spite of their own problems, choose as a profession to help others in need. I found the stories really touching and interesting.

Format: Paperback
Once again, Donna Maheady brings issues of the differently-abled person to light. Previously , she had shed light on Nursing Students with disAbilities and their efforts to go to and finish Nursing School. In this tome, Maheady takes us into the lives of 11 differently-abled working Nurses-their struggles to find employment, and to stay employed. These Nurses are dedicated, loving and caring about their career, families and their patients. Even though I was honored and priveledged to be selected as one of the "Eleven", these stories touch me. They bring tears to my eyes, no matter how many times I read them. This book should be read and read often, by Nursing Executives, Nursing Recruiters, and other Nurses. By reading these stories, you will see a glimpse into the life of a Nurse who goes to work every day- no matter what the obstacle.

This book is a marvelous reference for nurses with disabilities. I read this book because I am a nurse who has experienced some disability issues. I enjoyed reading the variety of personal stories because they were positive and inspirational. This book shows that disabled nurses can provide a valuable contribution to our health care system. I have this book and frequently refer back to it for encouragement.

This book had a lot of very useful information, and many inspiring stories. It is worth reading even if you are not planning on going into nursing. The insights offered here for people with disabilities can be applied to many fields.

I am a disabled RN who is trying to figure out her options for possibly going back to work in some capacity. If you look at the statistics, the majority of people on SSDI never return to the workplace in their lifetime. This book has helped inform me about different aspects of working while disabled through the stories that it tells. I enjoyed the variety in the stories and found them incredibly inspirational. Thank you to the author for putting out a book like this for those of us who need it!
