"These stories cannot help but touch the hearts and souls of all who read it, nurses or not. The authors have done nursing a wonderful service by bringing to light the touching, funny, heartfelt anecdotes shared by those at the bedside." -Sally Russell, M.N., R.N. , Educational Director, Academy of Medical Surgical Nurses

    Chicken Soup for the Nurses Soul

    Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Nancy Mitchell Autio- R.N, LeAnn Thieman

    Chicken Soup for the Nurses Soul there were a lot of different stories told by actual nurses. There was all kind of stories. Nurses expressing their feelings and telling jokes about some of the finest experiences they have been through. Some of the writers were giving advice for those who read the book or want to become a nurse.
    There were chapters on love, comfort a lot of Inspirational talk. This book inspired me because I felt that these people were being honest. It sounds so real because I work in a hospital and there is so much affection that is needed.
    Those who want to become a nurse should really read this book. The details that are given to the readers are excellent. There is some emotional advice and stories.

    i enjoyed reading this book. it was funny, emotional, educational and entertaining at the same time. i liked how it was not just one main topic of the book, there were many different stories from all different aspects of careers in the health field. it was this story called "women in the military" that was very informative to me because eventually i want to be a registered nurse in the United States Navy. ...more info

    Incredibly touching with quotes to remember. A book I will pass along so others can enjoy the soul warming experience as I did. ...more info
    I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for such a wonderful gift to nurses and indeed the profession of nursing itself. Right from the first story I was wiping the tears from my eyes. LeAnn, I think you can be assured you have once again made nursing history. I wish I was as articulate in writing as I am in speech. I would go on and on, but my recurrent thought is a simple "thank you". The timing of your book could not have been better. I am amazed at the level of despair and frustration that is found within our profession. Our colleagues need this book! It seems all to many have forgotten the real rewards of our work, yet you have captured it perfectly. Any nurse who reads this book will either find rejuvenation and inspiration or in my opinion should reconsider what it is they do for a living. For indeed if it does not touch their heart, a nurse may be "what" they do but it is not "who" they are.

    Thank you so much LeAnn, Jack, and Nancy for the wonderful book and gift. I wish you the greatest of success, which you have so deservingly earned.

  • CD version is excellent
    I am a nurse and work in a hospital. I ordered the CD version of Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul to give to a nursing unit to show my appreciation of their work. But before giving it to them, I listened to the CD. These stories are so touching that most of them brought tears to my eyes. They certainly help nurses remember the reasons we chose nursing as a career in the first place. The CD allows for a quick listen in the break room and several people can listen at the same time. A great CD. Looking forward to another publication on this topic. Thanks...more info
