Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is written by two journalists who have taken on the nursing profession more or less the way we take on patients with a life-threatening condition that is curable but requires both intensive and long-term care. The diagnosis, according to Buresh and Gordon, is silence. By being silent, we miss the opportunity to show ourselves as consequential in the delivery of healthcare. The remedy for silence, according to the authors, is voice—our voices raised in conversation first and foremost with our families, friends, and patients, and also with the general public."—Nursing Spectrum (reviewing a previous edition)

"This is an invaluable book for all nurses, especially those who are proud of being nurses and who have always wanted to make others understand our passion."—Nursing Standard (reviewing a previous edition)

What People are saying about this

Joan Lynaugh
This is a unique book—one that every practicing nurse will want to read now and every person aspiring to become a nurse MUST read to understand nursing. These well-known journalists share their deep, rich experience about how the world of media, public influence and debate really works. But most of all, this is a book of ideas; refreshingly fresh ideas which I guarantee you will read from front to back. From Silence to Voice makes you take a long, hard look at our wonderful profession and offers some potent suggestions for our future.
—(Joan Lynaugh, RN, PhD, FAAN, Professor Emeritus and Term Chair, History of Nursing and Health Care, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing)
