    Nurses have never been more important.

    We benefit from their expertise in our hospitals and beyond: in our schools, on our streets, in prisons, hospices and care homes. When we feel most alone, nurses remind us that we are not alone at all.

    In The Courage to Care bestselling author Christie Watson reveals the remarkable extent of nurses’ work:

    – A community mental-health nurse choreographs support for a man suffering from severe depression
    – A teen with stab wounds is treated by the critical-care team; his school nurse visits and he drops the bravado
    – A pregnant woman loses frightening amounts of blood following a car accident; it is a military nurse who synchronises the emergency department into immaculate order and focus.

    Christie makes a further discovery: that, time and again, it is patients and their families – including her own – who show exceptional strength in the most challenging times. We are all deserving of compassion, and as we share in each other’s suffering, Christie Watson shows us how we can find courage too. The courage to care.
