Has anyone read "Chicken Soup for the Nurses Soul"?

  1. I just read some sample stories, and I've read other chicken soup books and I really liked them. I orderd the nurse version tonight on Amazon.com. I was just wondering what everyone thought of the book. I know I'm going to love it. I'm REALLY into those touching stories.

    My dear Mom gave it to me as a gift. I am currently in the middle of reading it. I found it was something that I could not sit and just read from cover to cover but rather, read some of the stories and comptemplate long and hard what I have read. I can tell you though, what I have read....I would give the book 5 stars and reccomend it as a good read. Enjoy it.

    I recieve it for a gift when I graduated nursing school. I think in the two years I've been out of school I've read it something like three times!

    It gives me inspiration when I feel like my career is heading toward a wall. Speaking of which, I should go find that book! LOL

    My hospital gave it to all the nurses for National Nurses' Day, along with a nice calculator. I read it in the bathoom....or on break at work....the vignettes are a nice pick-me-up now and then.

    I get "Chicken Soup for the Soul"........
    not 'nurses' as a daily e-mail. A great start to any day.

    You can find it at.

    I laughed, I cried, I loved it. I got it as a gift at a conference that I went to. I read it piece by piece!
    Hey, maybe when you get it, it will help to you sleep if you read a story each night. (see, I am paying attention to all of the threads!!)

    I bought it for myself with a birthday gift certificate from Borders! I love it, but keep the Kleenex handy.

    I bought it after a very depressing day at the hospital...and I read it in 2 days. I looooooove this book. It makes me feel proud to be a nurse!
