Kathy Powell, RN, BSN, MSCHA, NCSN and Joan Cary, RN, BSN, NCSN will present the book "Twelve Patients" by Eric Manheimer, MD and how you can apply it to your professional school nursing practice. "Through the medium of stories Dr. Manheimer achieves a book that is more than about Bellevue:  It is about people, families, caregivers, culture, communities, desperation, despair, resilience and hope....  This book is tough medicine."  by Huffington Post. You can purchase this book on-line through Amazon and at most book stores. Approx 350 pages in length. Be prepared for this session to engage in thought provoking discussions. Start early and begin reading it this summer and enjoy!
