Review

Each photograph creates a sense of intrigue that urges the viewer to hurry along, turn the page, and see what is next.This collection of photographs, together with the narrative that explains them, will undoubtedly leave one with a profound respect for nurses, an understanding of how the nursing profession has evolved, and the challenges that lie ahead. --JAMA book review

Nursing lies at the very heart of humankind s commitment to caring for one another. NURSE: A World of Care shines light on the remarkable work of nurses and their struggles to reach all people, despite severe nursing shortages that threaten health care worldwide. --Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Nurses are essential to the health of all the world s people, yet the global shortage of nurses continues to worsen. This book thoughtfully illuminates both the importance of nurses and the challenges they face. --Jean Yan, Chief Scientist for Nursing and Midwifery, World Health Organization

This book tells in both words and pictures the life of a nurse. It shows the profession across the world.....it shows the best qualities of humanity and inspires the reader to find the best of himself or herself within.......whether or not you are in the nursing profession.

As a nurse, it was a wonderful and inspiring read. I will pass it on to my 2 daughters and a grand daughter that are nurses. It told about the compassion that we as nurses have regardless of status, color or ethnic and religous background. It made me feel that we, as nurses, could wipe out a lot of pain and suffering throughout the world if only funds were available.
