My favorite healthcare books and gifts for 2016 — 3 Comments

  1. I know I won’t be able to read it, haha, but my brother reads all the time. And he reads heavy stuff as well. Dreamland seems interesting enough though, I might give it a try myself.
    Yeah you’re right, even though he works at a very reputable hospital but I guess some thing remain the same everywhere.
    Shared this post on my Facebook so that everyone can take advantage of the awesome list, keep more of these coming (thumbs up emoji)!

  2. Not that anyone wants to know but my favorite books are the Harry Potter series. NOTHING compares! But I’m not buying gifts for myself am I.
    This is a very eclectic list that you have provided us with, thank you.
    I think I’ll get the “Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep” for my brother who is an insomniac.
    And I’ll get “I Wasn’t Strong Like This When I Started Out: True Stories of Becoming a Nurse” for my nurse friend who is getting his BSN. I think it would really help him since lately he’s been a bit despondent with the profession. It’s just a phase which I’m sure he will snap out of. I have never seen a person more excited to become a nurse than he is, haha.
    Good day!

    • Hi Shizza! I loved “Dreamland”; the social history of sleep is fascinating, especially learning how Edison and his lightbulb ruined our sleep habits forever more 🙂

      I got the nurse book for my niece, who is also studying to be a nurse. I think a lot of the burnout factor is from the bureaucratic overlords, who are making life difficult for nurses and physicians both. Luckily, a nursing profession allows for a lot of diversity and being able to move into different types of nursing care. I hope your friend finds what works best for him! Best, FN
