Not only does the book guide nurses on how to spread their value to all professions, it is the very foundation of self care that could reflect the basis of advanced care of the clients they are entrusted with. This is truly the banner for all grades of nursing.

This was an interesting book (it's worth the money!). The book presents the nursing profession in a new light. Good to read - especially for nursing students.

This book should be read by every nursing student as part of the curriculum. I think it does of great job of explaining the why's and how's of nursing as a profession. A great read!
