Reviewed by Mary DeKok Blowers for Readers' Favorite Midnight Meditations for Nurses: A Nurse's Soul Revealed, by Diane Bouffard, is sensitively written and worthwhile as it speaks to this under-appreciated group of people. My mother is in a nursing home and I have gotten to know some of the nurses there. They are so appreciative of family members who visit their parents or spouses and there are so many residents who don't get visitors. I can see how difficult their jobs are as their residents pass away, or lose their loved ones, or suffer from worsening conditions. Nurses can easily become attached to the residents and feel a real sense of loss if they leave or die. Still, they are required by their jobs to provide comfort and attend to needs. Diane Bouffard describes another problem nurses face, something I didn’t realize, in Midnight Meditations. It is the fear of doing something wrong, of harming a patient, or appearing insensitive with relatives. This little book provides godly comfort for the nurse as he or she experiences difficult circumstances on the job. Each “meditation” is short, and can be easily read on a break and even meditated upon. The meditations provide another perspective to whatever is going on by encouraging the nurse to think of what the other person may be feeling, such as their fears of the unknown, or their anger at hospital policies, or even just the seeming unfairness of life. By taking a moment to breathe, read, and meditate or pray, one can gather the strength to deal with whatever needs to be dealt with.
