She demonstrates how to forge stronger relationships with colleagues and patients, and solve work-related problems head-on. As a nursing educator, therapist, practitioner, and practicing RN, Thomas provides personal accounts of her own experiences as a nurse, struggling to meet the many challenges of the job.
