    Nurses┬┐Seekers of Knowledge

    Reflections on Doctors is a rare and startling treasure of a book, bursting with precision, intimacy, and unrestrained voices of nurses. The contributors of this important anthology represent a variety of perspectives; some have been nurses for years, while others are relatively new to the profession, but all of them have witnessed considerable relationship changes between nurses and physicians over time. The sharing of their unique stories represents the evolving image of nurses¿no longer do we respond to authority with unquestioning obedience, but instead we are seekers of knowledge, trained to question, research, and express ourselves in crucial conversations. Thank you, Terry Ratner, for introducing this daring topic and for advancing the nursing profession.

    Voices of our Profession

    As an avid reader and nurse for over twenty years, I found Reflections on Doctors to be enlightening and compelling, as it touched on topics that have been ignored for years--communication and trust between nurses and doctors. It's rare to find essays about nurses that don't dramatize their relationship with physicians, but instead portray an accurate description of what goes on behind closed doors. This is just the beginning of an "open door" policy by nurses, who are also proficient writers and the new voices for our profession. This anthology needs to be required reading for nurses, doctors, and nursing and medical students. It's a book to be cherished and shared.

    A Long Overdue Dialogue

    I¿m in nursing school expecting to graduate this June. My clinical instructor required our class to read Reflections on Doctors to assist in increasing our understanding of the nurse-physician relationship. The essays opened my eyes to a variety of issues which my class discussed in an open forum. A Readers Guide, located in the back of the book, provided opportunities for further discussion of these provocative essays. What became clear is the importance of communication between physicians and nurses and how far the nursing profession has evolved. The result¿a promoting of the nursing profession with a long overdue dialogue.
