In late 1999 the book “Touched by Nurse: Special moments that transform lives” was published. The intention of this book was to compile stories of the impact of nurses’ work. The book far exceeded all expectations of the publisher and was translated in to two languages. It was included in the Florence Nightingale’s Library in London. The stories were all true stories, with pseudonyms for privacy.
Included here will be many of those original stories and some never published. The stories are inspirational, moving, funny and depict the reality of our work. We can be inspired by the power of our work as told in these stories and sustained in times of challenge.
