Book Review – Nursing From Within

NursingFromWithinDid you ever wonder why certain behaviors seem to be prevalent among nurses?  Have you wanted to know what can be done about it?  Well, Elizabeth Scala, MSN/MBA, RN has some answers in her new book, “Nursing from Within: A Fresh Alternative to Putting Out Fires and Self-Care Workarounds.”

In this book, Elizabeth takes an honest look at nursing identifying some common issues we encounter in nursing such as coming to a new unit or job, observing ineffective practices and hearing, “We’ve always done it that way.” Or, being placed in a leadership position without training and being left to “figure it out.”

Elizabeth doesn’t stop there.  This is not a book to complain about the woes of nursing.  Elizabeth offers sound advice on how to “shift” your energy and focus on your personal self. One way she does this is through the introduction of Reiki (pronounced Ray-key).  Elizabeth is a Reiki Master Teacher and brings a wholistic, practical approach to taking care of ourselves as nurses.

This book is easy reading and a must read for nurses in all practice areas and all levels of nursing.   Elizabeth ties everything together with a purpose;   to elevate the profession of nursing.  If you are tired of the “band aid” approach to the challenges of nursing or more-so the “workaround” approach to taking care of yourself, the information in this book is essential!

Hip, Hip Hooray for nurses like Elizabeth who is focusing her energy on empowering other nurses to live their best life!
