Overview

Staying sane sometimes means embracing insanity-especially in nursing! What's it really like to be a male nurse? For Richard Steele it means incompetent administrators, drug addicted doctors, a whacked-out nursing staff, long grueling hours, and bizarre patients. Confessions of a Male Nurse takes you on a rollercoaster ride through the on- and off-duty life of a gay male nurse in the early 1980s before AIDS became an epidemic. This hilarious, often touching dark comic novel will take you on a wild ride with our irreverent hero with some of the wackiest adventures to the horrifying beginning of the AIDS crisis. This is as real as it gets. Confessions of a Male Nurse tells the uncensored story of a gay man who wants to make a difference with his life-by helping those in need. From his tortuous schooling through being on staff at a hospital, this tale takes you on his adventures from the pediatric ward to the psych ward to the Intensive Care Unit-and the screwball staff and friends he meets. Get the whole torrid story! There's romance! Will Steele win the heart of the handsome Dr. Storm? Passion! Can Steele resist the advances of a gorgeous movie star? Action! Will Steele win the battle with the marine-tough, rock-fisted 10-year-old girl? Drama! How will Steele stop the human A-bomb in the psych ward from blowing a hole in the world? Pathos! Will that size catheter fit? Find out this and more in Confessions of a Male Nurse!
