less than expected

I was hoping to hear Real Raw to the bone advice on situations where a nurse said "Oh shit I almost killed you " but survived - in order for me to learn from their experiences. This narrative instead had in my opinion A generalized sugar coated advise and alot of Kumbaya advice.

Definitely the book to give any new nurse!

Also to give to nurse friends of all ages and stages of career. There are whole sections I would love to have a various places like the wall art you see everywhere about life, love, happiness, teaching, caring and reality. I want to give it as a gift to all of my healthcare assoc friends, family and colleagues!

I mean, let’s be honest...

I wrote the book...so yeah, I guess I’m giving myself five stars. Also, the fact that you can synchronize the audio with a text reading is pretty cool. Anyway thanks for tuning in, everyone: I absolutely appreciate you all, & feedback is always welcome! :)

Loved every second

I love the brutal honesty of this book, as a current care assistant and student nurse at the half way point in my training I was looking for something to uplift my spirits and keep me going. This book did that.
I will be telling all of my nurse and student nurse friends to read or listen to this because it had me crying at parts with empathy and also side splitting laughter.
One day when I’ve been qualified for a while I will definitely revisit this book and love it all over again!

Love From A Nurse

I’ve been following Sonja on Instagram for some time and her book did not disappoint. An essential read for any new nurse, who feels like they will never get it, never feel the love, or never be good at what they do. Sonja will show you that you are enough and you will only get better
