From the ICU to the psychiatric ward, student nurse Irwin Choo takes us on a journey into the world of nursing in a typical hospital in Penang, Malaysia. As a teenager, Irwin knew he wanted to be a nurse despite the objections from his family. With great determination, he persevered in following his heart and clinched a sponsorship for a three-year nursing course. This book is an honest and humorous account of one man's start in the nursing profession. Heartwarming and entertaining, it gives a good insight into the challenges faced by a male nurse in a predominantly female world.
