Professor Christie Watson is an award winning writer, and was a registered nurse for over 20 years. A theatre adaptation of her work on nursing is about to go on UK tour. Her latest book, The Courage To Care: a vital and timely book about inspirational nurses, and the bravery of patients and families.
Nurses have never been more important. We benefit from their expertise in our hospitals and beyond: in our schools, on our streets, in prisons, hospices and care homes. When we feel most alone, nurses remind us that we are not alone at all.
