“…Brimming with new knowledge, I thought I was fully ready to assume the care of people. I mistook information for insight. While I was prepared for the science, I was pitifully unprepared for the soul.”
This quote comes from a book I am currently reading “The Anatomy of Hope: How People Prevail in the Face of Illness“.
Now that the celebrations are dying down, and it’s starting to hit home that I am going to be an RN, that a group of people out there have decided that I am competent to have the care of sick and broken bodies committed to my hands, I find myself thinking much about whether I know what I’m getting into. It bears thinking about, and if you’re in any field involving patient care, this book is worth reading.
PS: This book came from my wishlist by way of a graduation gift. Thank you Angie!
