The stationery Nurse

The stationery Nurse is a humorous narrative centered about the training days of a nurse, not just but rather a male nurse. Nursing in Australia, humour, travel and adventure. These words take the reader through what it meant to be a man in a women's world of nursing. The book looks into the dying years of hospital based nursing training in the nineteen seventies, looking at what makes nurses tick, their adventures and fun. It is, in part a biography of the men who found themselves ruffling the skirt of Florence Nightingale. It will give you a taste of what it means to be a man traveling in a women's universe, where to make it in this profession of nursing, means you are just- "One of the girls"

About the Author

Ross McIlwraith was born near Salisbury in Wiltshire England. He moved to Australia at age seven with his family, in the mid sixties, at the peak of the "Ten pound migrant" scheme. Ross' family settled in Adelaide, South Australia where he gained a first hand insight in to what it meant to be a pom in the public school system. After a brief stint as a bank clerk, he entered nursing in the late 'seventies, where he met his future wife Julie, and proceeded to have a "Mills and Boon" hospital romance of stolen kisses in the lifts between wards and hospital floors. After finishing his nursing training, Ross spent some years with his, by now, new wife in England, completing an Operating Theatre Management course. Ross returned to Adelaide with a heavily pregnant Julie and has worked in a number of hospitals while raising four children and an over excited goldfish called Elvis. He is currently working as a clinical nurse at a Private Hospital in the eastern suburbs of Adelaide. Ross still lives with his wife Julie and three of his four children and a geriatric Siberian Husky, north east of Adelaide.
