Intimate conversations with authors and guests about literature

    Nurses and the courage to care ᛫ Christie Watson

    Nurses and the courage to care ᛫ Christie Watson

    Nurses have never been more important. In this episode, author Christie Watson is in conversation with Marverine Cole, discussing her nursing career of twenty years, motherhood, coping with life during a pandemic, and her new book. The Courage to Care is about inspirational nurses, and the bravery of patients and families, from the bestselling author of The Language of Kindness.


    In The Courage to Care Christie Watson reveals the remarkable extent of nurses' work. We benefit from nurses' 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. We are all deserving of compassion, and as we share in each other's suffering, Christie Watson shows us how we can find courage too. The courage to care.
