Disclosure: I had the opportunity to work with Beth as she wrote this book. I learned a great deal on the topic and can see the value Medical Improv can during these disruptive times.
As a new Nurse Blogger, I have waited for this book for a long time, The Nurse’s Guide to Blogging, was written by Brittney Wilson and Kati Kleber. Brittney has been a mentor and an inspiration to many nurses who wanted to use blogging to share their knowledge, expertise, and insights. As soon as the book was released, I ordered it and began to read it! I have to say it was worth the wait! These two nurses have put their heads together to create a one-stop resource for nurses looking to grow their blog, audience, and brand. If you are a nurse blogger or have thought about becoming a nurse blogging, this is a must read.

My next recommendation is a book by a LinkedIn contact, Kathy Torpie. "Losing Face: A Memoir of Lost Identity and Self Discovery" Losing Face’ tells the story of Kathy Torpie’s long journey of recovery as she struggles to cope with life changing multiple trauma following a head-on collision with a drunk driver. She takes the reader on a journey through the alien and often terrifying world of the hospital as experienced by the patient. It is an intensely intimate view of the patient experience. One that is often hidden by more visible physical trauma. As a patient, Kathy encountered a broad spectrum of health care professionals in a wide variety of circumstances in New Zealand, Australia and the United States. She was left with new insights about the powerful influence that the clinician/patient relationship can have on important clinical outcomes, on patient safety, and on patient satisfaction. Losing Face was written as an invitation to enter into the world of the patient and share in some of the discoveries Kathy made along the way about the medical and personal dimensions of the patient experience.
