The essence of nursing care continually exposes nurses to suffering. Although they bear witness to the suffering of others, their own suffering is less frequently exposed. This book attempts to give voice to the suffering that nurses witness in patients, families, colleagues, and themselves. By making this suffering visible, the book aims both to honor and help solve the problem. The book offers nurses' colleagues in other professions - social workers, psychologists, chaplains, ethicists, and physicians - a window onto what it means to practice nursing.
