Relentless Recommended Reading

The list of recommended reading is always expanding. I have connected with each of the authors on this list either in person or through the power of Twitter. The list will grow through suggestions from you, my readers! Please feel free to contact me with your ideas, recommendations, and reviews of books that have either changed your practice or given you a new perspective.  Lifelong learning is one of the keys to being a #RelentlessSchoolNurse.
