S4. Ep 4. Part 1: Poetic Expressions in Nursing: Sharing the Caring Susan J Farese, MSN, RN
In part 1, we meet Susan J. Farese, MSN, RN, a San Diego and Poet/RN/Veteran and PR Professional who recently published the 2nd edition of (my 1993 book) Poetic Expressions in Nursing: Sharing the Caring in 2021. We learn about her beginnings and where she developed the creative nature for writing. The book is not only for nurses but for those who care about and support them (especially with this pandemic).
“Nursing is an incredibly enriching yet stressful profession and besides being a science, it is truly an art. This second edition of Poetic Expressions in Nursing: Sharing the Caring is dedicated to all nurses – past, present, and future. It is a celebration of nursing and a tribute to nurses, especially during this unexpected, unprecedented pandemic. Covid-19 took its toll on nurses during 2020 and hopefully the impact of stress and burnout will be lessened with time and the arts. Poetry can be a therapeutic and cathartic tool for nurses and other caring professions to deal with the angst, stressors or joys that accompany the profession.” – Susan J. Farese, MSN, RN
