FROM SILENCE TO VOICE
"A MUST-READ FOR EVERY NURSE..."
To get the resources and respect they need, nurses must advocate for themselves and their profession, not just for their patients. From Silence to Voice, provides nurses with the communication tools they need to explain the breadth and complexity of nursing work.
Bernice will come and talk with your group about how nurses can achieve the Respect, Recognition, Reward, and Resources they so richly deserve and need to continue their indispensable work.
""The book is written by two journalists who have taken on the nursing profession more or less the way we take on patients with a life-threatening condition that is curable but requires both intensive and long-term care. The diagnosis, according to Buresh and Gordon, is silence. By being silent, we miss the opportunity to show ourselves as consequential in the delivery of healthcare. The remedy for silence, according to the authors, is voice―our voices raised in conversation first and foremost with our families, friends, and patients, and also with the general public."―Nursing Spectrum
