    This book enables the reader to walk a mile in another person's shoes: a nurse's shoes. In one compelling story and poem after another -- written by nurses of every stripe -- we are brought into the presence of human vulnerability, the collision between individualism and medical necessity, the fragily of life and the dedication of those working to preserve and extend it. Physicians come and examine and go, but nurses are there at the bedside hour upon hour. This anthology is a moving and masterf This book enables the reader to walk a mile in another person's shoes: a nurse's shoes. In one compelling story and poem after another -- written by nurses of every stripe -- we are brought into the presence of human vulnerability, the collision between individualism and medical necessity, the fragily of life and the dedication of those working to preserve and extend it. Physicians come and examine and go, but nurses are there at the bedside hour upon hour. This anthology is a moving and masterful revelation of how that work actually feels.

    I read poems from this book all the time, but the one I keep the closest to me is "A Moment in the History of Nursing" by Frances Araujo. . . ."I believe in certain things: that we live each other's lives, and that we belong to one another. And I believe that all human beings, given enough time, will move toward love. I believe that every life, no matter how brief or how long or how complicated it looks on the outside, is, in its own way, perfect.". ..
