Can you name a nurse leader (who isn’t Florence Nightingale)? In ‘The Wisdom of Nurses: Stories of Grit from the Front Lines' the book’s nurse-authors, Amie Archibald Varley and Sara Fung, highlight nursing leaders whose invaluable contributions to healthcare are often overlooked. Through personal anecdotes and reflections, the book celebrates the profound impact of nurses on individuals, families, and communities, and emphasizes the importance of recognizing and valuing nursing wisdom in healthcare settings. The book also appreciates that expertise in nursing goes beyond technical proficiency to the ability to navigate complex healthcare situations with compassion and professionalism.

Written for aspiring and practicing nurses, and for the public, nursing expertise is explained as multifaceted work, encompassing clinical skills, critical thinking, empathy, communication, and holistic care. Archibald-Varley and Fung’s book is a refreshing, engaging read, ultimately fostering a sense of community within the nursing profession by speaking out about the collective wisdom and expertise of nurses. It is so much more than just ‘the lady with the lamp’.
