Book Review

Making a difference : stories from the point of care / Sharon Hudacek.

Hudacek, Sharon

I'm not sure why I picked up this book to read. Perhaps the title reached out to me as a nursing student. My attention was drawn to the stories of nurses who change lives. Maybe I was just lured by the peaceful and comforting cover art.

Somewhat different from other books I have read, this title contains stories about nurses who with a gentle hand comfort, care and make a different in other people's lives. The book has given me a vision of what it should be like out there in the world of a nurse practitioner.

Most of the stories touched my heart, and help me further develop an appreciation for nurses and their occupation. I would definitely recommend this book, especially to my fellow nursing students. The stories pull you in, and you just cannot put the book down.
