Not many books focus on the impact of retirement on the individual nurse. After years of focusing on the needs of others, nurses in retirement may feel their skills do not translate into the world of everyday living. Redefining Retirement for Nurses contains stories by nurses who have successfully transitioned their skills into retirement to live a meaningful life. The book consists of 8 sections: Aging and Retirement, Redefining Retirement, Professional Work Post-Retirement, Volunteering or Community Activities, Family and Travel, New Ventures, All of the Above, and Planning for a Long, Fulfilling Retirement. A robust list of retirement resources is also included. For those of us in the nursing profession who are facing retirement, this book can help answer some of the questions we have about the possibilities for our life after leaving our paid professional obligations.
