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.
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.
