From the people who brought you the bestselling Confessions of a GP.
From stampeding nudes to inebriated teenagers, young nurse Michael Alexander never really knew what he was getting himself into. But now, sixteen years since he was first launched into his nursing career – as the only man in a gynaecology ward – he’s pretty much dealt with everything: Body parts that come off in his hands; Teenagers with phantom pregnancies; Doctors unable to tell the difference between their left and right; Violent drunks; Singing relatives; Sexism; . . . and a whole lot of nudity.
Confessions of a Male Nurse is a touching, shocking and frequently hilarious account of one man’s life in nursing.
‘A fantastic read. Everything I had always suspected about nurses and so much more!’ - Dr Benjamin Daniels, author of bestselling ‘Confessions of a GP’
‘An incredibly emotional journey’ - Star Magazine
About the author

Are these people for real?
A giggle at the stupidity and laziness of some people using the A&E services.
Being a retired nurse I found this book very interesting. Whilst it is bemusing to read about the antics in the A&E department, I still find it astounding that nurses continue to take all the abuse that the general public throw at them, and continue to remain professional. It would appear that very little has changed since my days in A&E.
I found this book a good read, and it also allowed me to reflect on my own practices it A&E some almost 50 years ago now.
This is a good read.

I found this book excellent. Loved reading every page. I could relate to every situation. Wish there was more books like this.
