’The best quotes and stories from the Second Six issues of Wellbeing for Nurses Magazine'
Every month, Wellbeing for Nurses Magazine has a section called 'You Gotta Laugh or You'll Cry' where nurses from around the world send in stories where they've said the wrong thing, where things have all gone pear shaped, patients have done something hilarious, or they've ended up covered in all kinds of fluid. These quotes and stories are the best of those sent in to Wellbeing for Nurses Magazine, which is published in over 150 countries around the globe.
'Nurses are always busy.'
Sadly the average nurse or student nurse rarely has time to sit down with a nice, quiet cuppa (or a glass of red!) and read anything, let alone books on nursing. So unlike the massive medical books you had to lug to nursing school, this book is in short, easy to read snippets so you can dip in and dip out when you're on the bus or train, or you squeeze in a break. It's a five minute de-stress break made incredibly easy.
