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 has inspirational experiences that nurses have experienced in their unique lives, and a plethora of encouragement for anyone, not necessarily nurses. I am also disabled from an injury while on duty working with a patient transfer; consequently and foremost it is my aspiration to research on this increasing population of nurses in our society today. The populations of the clients served, have higher acuities and higher body mass indexes (BMI). This places nurses at an elevated degree of injury over a period of time. It is an honor that I am presently working with Donna Maheady as my mentor with my project.
I discovered Donna Maheady, ARNP, EdD, through her website Exceptionalnurse.com while working on my Capstone Project during the completion of my Bachelor of Science Degree (BSN) from California Baptist University in California. The website listed this book, "Leave No Nurse Behind: Nurses Working with disAbilities" as one of many to read.
I have shared her book with faculty and my cohorts telling them that it is a book that they should read to bring new insight to their nursing careers. It is a very fast and easy read leaving you wanting more. The personal stories depicted, I can relate with, and admire the tenacity that each one has had to have, to endure a culture of administrators and nurse managers looking at the disability and not the knowledge to tap into. This book would be instrumental in the curriculum of the nursing programs in education. Thank you Donna Maheady for putting these eleven real-life experiences together in this book.

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.

Format: Paperback
Donna Maheady brings the issue of disabled nurses to the forefront in Leave No Nurse Behind: Nurses Working with disAbilities. This is an issue that seldom receives any attention. Through case studies written by the disabled nurses themselves, the challenges of continuing in the profession they love are presented in an atmosphere of "rising above" the disability. The stories are inspirational and leaves one with a can-do attitude. Great book for nurses, student nurses, administrators,and educators.
