When it comes to becoming a nurse, there is a lot that we cannot possibly expect. There is no amount of preparation that anyone can realistically do in order to be prepared for all situations once you become a nurse.

However, hearing the stories of others can often help us better understand how to deal with these situations and how to adjust as needed in the future.

In I Wasn’t Strong Like This When I Started Out: True Stories of Becoming a Nurseedited by Lee Gutkind, you can read a collection of true narratives that reflect the diversity of nurses and what they encountered when they started off in the nursing fields. Some of these stories are about first births, or first deaths, and some are about first “sticks.”

This is a beautiful collection as it demonstrates the voices of nurses at different points of their careers and how they find that their life and career is changed by their encounters in nursing. Each story shows the courage, the difficult, and the beauty of the nursing career.
