Editorial Reviews

Review

Wow! Every single inspired destination touched my heart. I loved how diverse the "truths" are in each of the stories. Regardless your race, culture, or religion there is going to be one, two, or ten take aways. --David Zambrana, University of Miami Hospital

I laughed, I cried, I was proud to be a nurse. --Pauletta Thomas, Blue Ridge Health

My heart and head were stimulated by the stories. This book is a gift to any nurse who has been on the front lines. My focus has been resharpened and my passion re-ignited. --Linda Deering, Sherman Health

I grew up with Richard in Miami! It was so exciting to see how God has been using him in the field of nursing! I am also a nurse who stumbled upon Richard's great book after researching some of the Studor materials for work. This book is like reading Richard's personal journal which is full of wonderful yet very inspiring true stories. At the end of each chapter are practical ways we can better inspire ourselves and others! Thanks Richard!

I heard Rich speak earlier this year at our local hospital and he was great. He is so inspirational and down to earth.
He makes it all real and gives ideas on how to change the way you look at things in your life. I have read only part of the book but already laughed and cried.

Having experienced Rich Bluni as an inspirational speaker, I had to read his book. It proved as good as he was in person, and I get to take it out and have reminders whenever I need a little boost. The author brought me through his transformation in life to being a nurse; I laughed and I cried relating to his stories. I remember why I chose this journey, and I found new ways to look at my career through his lens. He even made me remember some of the most touching times I have experienced as a caregiver.I learned tricks from not only an inspired nurse, but from an inspirational nurse though his words. This is a good read for anyone, yet particularly for someone who is considering to chose nursing as thier path. Rich Bluni will also bring a seasoned nurse to new places in thier career. I have become an inspired nurse from this book. Read it!

A gift for my wife. So good that this is our second copy. (the first one disappeared during a move). Some of the stories are from his presentation (she's seen him). Very inspiring. (title is fitting).

She was really pleased to get a replacement copy. 5 stars!

"Inspired Nurse" is one of those books that stops you still in your tracks and reminds you just how profound and AMAZING it is to be a nurse. It reminds us just how incredibly privileged we are to be a part of the intimacy, the joy, the laughter, as well as the devastating loss of our fellow beings' humanity. I'm not sure another book has had me laughing and crying all at once and so often! This book lifts me up in ways innumerable and is a treasured gift from a fellow nurse (from whom I have been tremendously inspired). Thanks, Rich Bluni for reminding us of the precious nature of this calling!

So many wonderful insights with stories of his or a friend's experiences. So glad that this man choose a career as a nurse! Ordering copies for the new nurses in my life. It took me years to understand what Rich has in this book! Especially great for nurses going through a rough time in there careers too.
