Nurse Arnie Scandrett loves working in a male-friendly, relaxed environment where patients can access specialist care, and where he and other Menz Medical staff can impart tips to improve health and wellbeing.
“We have to be purposeful in what we are doing. We are here for a reason. We are here to improve health outcomes for men, and if we have the time give education to the individuals to improve their health literacy. We can have some great conversations in amongst all the interventions we are doing.”
Arnie retrained as a nurse more than a decade ago after considering a few
career options, including the police and teaching.
“I think I have a caring ability … it (nursing) seemed to be a nice mix using
your heart and being an agent of therapy to help others.”
