From Silence to Voice: What Nurses Know and Must Communicate to the Public

To get the resources and respect they need, nurses have long had to be advocates for themselves and their profession, not just for their patients.

To get the resources and respect they need, nurses have long had to be advocates for themselves and their profession, not just for their patients. For a decade, From Silence to Voice has provided nurses with the tools they need to explain the breath and complexity of nursing work. Bernice Buresh and Suzanne Gordon have helped nurses around the world speak up and convey to the public that nursing is more than dedication and caring-it demands specialized knowledge, expertise across a range of medical technologies, and decision-making about life-and-death issues. "Nurses and nursing organizations," they write, "must go out and tell the publicwhat nurses really do so that patients can actually get the benefit of their expert care."

The comprehensively revised and updated third edition of From Silence to Voice will help nursesconstruct messages using a range of traditional and new social media that accurately describe thetrue nature of their work. Because nurses are busy, the communication techniques in this book are designed to integrate naturally into nurses' everyday lives and to complement nurses' work with patients and families.
