Description

These 25 true stories reveal what it is like to practice nursing in a country different from one's own. As the "New York Times" noted: "At a time when many people feel lucky to have a steady job, thousands of nurses feel lucky not to have one. Known as traveling nurses, they have made a career and life out of working in staccato bursts."Written by nurses for nurses, this book provides the insight that comes from experience. Whether confronted with unfamiliar cultural norms, new medical language, or fewer resources, the nurses writing in this collection offer a view of the commonalities and differences in nursing and how it is practiced around the world. Whether it's a U.S. nurse practitioner training doctors in war-torn Kosovo, a French nurse offering aid in Indonesia, or a Canadian nurse experiencing her dream to live and work in the Caribbean, these stories will intrigue and inspire."Caring Beyond Borders" is as compelling as it is enjoyable, and provides the reader with a first-class pass to the wide world of nursing.
