Habits For Nurses: An Injection Of Simplicity In A Stat World is a work of non-fiction in the guidebook and advice sub-genres and was penned by author Beau Salts, RN B.S. Written as the first book in the Nurse Success Series, this concise but highly informative volume explains specific advice and self-help guidance for nurses who work long hours in difficult and unusual conditions compared to most workplaces. Written by a registered nurse who is also a learned voice in psychology, the work seeks to offer practical life advice for mental strength and energy to face the workday and tips and tricks for working life to ease pressures and save time.
Author Beau Salts, RN B.S. offers a wealth of experience from a practical and empathetic perspective in this excellent volume of advice and guidance. The psychological touches of the narrative really home in on the central concept of habit formation towards future success, and such expertise is also delivered in small, simple chunks that can be implemented without too much strain. The author voice is both charismatic and kind to the reader, offering understanding and an empowering mindset that offers real results. I also found the organization of the different chapters and strategies to be really useful, easy to cross-reference, and a resource that builds from an emotive understanding of individual problems to an effective solution that helps these important workers to battle their daily challenges. Overall, I would highly recommend Habits For Nurses: An Injection Of Simplicity In A Stat World as a highly informative and helpful read.

In his candid and warm introduction Beau states, ’I am here to help my fellow nurses simplify their lives. I am an enormous believer in the power of simplicity. You won’t find any complicated solutions here. When was the last time a complicated solution actually worked for you? (I am hearing crickets now.) They don’t work for me either. We don’t have time for that. What you WILL find are workable solutions to real-world problems that confront nurses on a daily basis.’
What follows is a practical and valuable core of instructions and recommendations that are straightforward, honest, lighthearted and valuable. The sections of the book are divided into Mental Strategies (rituals, meditation, sleep assistance advice) Emotional Strategies (communication with patients as in bedside manner etc, self-compassion, hobbies, meditation), Physical Health Strategies (advice on spine care, workouts, snacks, hydration), Organizational Strategies (career development finances, chores such as laundry) – each section addressed in a manner that makes Beau’s advice accessible, useful – and entertaining! He even provides references to sites (such as YouTube) that augment his recommendations.
At this particular time when healthcare professionals are challenged, overburdened, and exhausted from the pace of care during the pandemic, this book is particularly beneficial to boost performance, fitness physically and emotionally, and morale for our nurses. This is an exceptionally fine book in a series that should become required reading for practicing, and for student, nurses. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, July 20
The first chapter was not impressive, in fact, it just restated what you would find in nearly every modern self-help book. Drink water in the morning, exercise first thing out of bed, have a nightly routine, and similar suggestions.
The good parts are the techniques. When we get away from the sayings, and the proven-to-be-good-for-you habits, you get a lot of really great techniques. I really enjoyed the writer’s take on visualization which was incredibly unique. (I won’t divulge it here cause, spoilers) The author also did well in the entire section on career development’s on-the-job organization section.
I do have a pet peeve that really stuck out in this book, I do not want to read smiley faces. To me, it doesn’t make the content more friendly, even when the author is using all CAPS to emphasize a particular topic. It just breaks up the text in a weird way and throws off my flow.
Overall, there’s a lot of good information here and what bothered me will probably go unnoticed by other readers. It’s worth the read.
This book helped give me a better understanding of the life a of nurse, how they can take care of themselves inside and outside the workplace, and even how to improve myself. The author covers such a wide range of topics that I'm not sure if there is much else to be said honestly.
The two gripes I had with the book were the formatting and some very large smile faces :) that pushed lines of text apart on the desktop kindle reader. The formatting just felt clunky like there were unnecessarily large margins for the bullet points and a lot of ALL CAPS text that could have just as easily been italicized.
Other than those two areas, the book was solid. Hopefully the author will come out with another one focused on finances, further education, etc. Hitting other areas of a nurse's life will compliment this book.
