5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty Of Humanity And A Touch Of Humour
If you're my age, when you see the words "Confessions Of" in a title you can't help but associate it with images of that cheeky chap Robin Askwith and his tawdry 1970's sub Carry On dirty films. Whilst our neighbours across the channel were making the erotic Emmanuelle, Askwith was peeping at showering schoolgirls through bathroom windows with a leering grin that would...

2.0 out of 5 stars Confessions of a Male Nurse
Confessions of a Male Nurse is a sequel of sorts to the successful Confessions of a GP, by Benjamin Daniels. It has a broadly similar epistolary structure, which lends itself well to a series of anecdotes on connected themes.

Confessions of a Male Nurse is a volume that may hold particular interest to those interested in comparisons between the NHS and other...

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 14 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very simply written book, easy reading but enjoyable. Chapter length is good and it is interesting to see that New Zealand's health services are much like ours. (Although my sister in law assures me they are 100% better!). Worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars very entertaining, 4 Oct. 2012
this is a light hearted read which informs and entertains. As a nurse I was curious as to the differences between a male and female nurse - the author nails it on the head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, humorous and shocking, 29 Sept. 2012

I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked the author and found him to be genuine, compassionate and professional. I've never been an in-patient so it was a fascinating, humorous, occasionally shocking, insight into what happens in hospitals. It was well written and there was plenty of humour as well as poignant moments. The chapters were broken down into easy to read chunks and they flowed nicely, almost telling a story. It was very easy to read and very good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent read!, 16 Sept. 2012
All the characteristics of a really good read. Eye-opening, intriguing (if you're interested but not educated in medicine), shed a tear in places but most of all laugh out loud funny. This book seems to be a really honest account of nursing. Buy and you won't be disappointed.

Just wanted to say thanks for sharing your experiences. I think nurses are one of the most bravest people in society and this book reaffirmed this for me. Great read, funny, sad and hopeful all at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Title says it, 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Entertaining yet informative account of a male nurse's experiences in UK NHS and New Zealand. Both medical and psychiatric situations are covered in an amusing yet thought-provoking way. General consumption but especially suited to those about to embark on nurse training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny with occasional pathos., 27 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Funny yet revealing his care for the patients and love for his vocation. A crisp turn of phrase assists the humour! Great for reading last thing at night as it flits from one anecdote to another so can be put down as soon as sleep threatens to overtake the laughter.

My daughters training to be a nurse and I bought this for her but read it before she did. I really enjoyed it and it's certainly given me further insight Into her career path.
Perhaps should be compulsory reading for some of our UK politicians too...
