Can nurses care too much?
New York Times, February 9, 2009
This New York Times essay written by an oncology nurse discusses the strong bonds that nurses form with the patients they treat. "In medical oncology our patients stay in the hospital often for weeks or even months," writes nurse Theresa Brown in the essay. "They leave and come back, again and again, with this or that complication, or because they need more chemo, or because they've relapsed. We get to know them, their families, even their friends. And because we know them so well, in such an intense and intimate setting, we end up caring about them."
