Hi, I am Scott and I qualified as a nurse in 2014 from Anglia Ruskin University. I work within a busy critical care unit in Cambridgeshire and have recently been promoted to Deputy Charge Nurse.

In my time as a nurse I have undertaken master’s modules in Acute Care, Critical Care and have completed my mentorship training. I enjoy studying and passing on this knowledge to my colleagues.

I am among the 10% of males in nursing and feel strongly about trying to increase this number. Nursing is one of rare areas of work that is dominated by women and, historically, has been viewed as a career that it is more suited to “female” traits.

I love my job and hope that I can encourage others to see that it is a viable career and one that they can do with whatever they wish to.
