Career profile: Kendra Scheller

Kendra Scheller, Nurse Practitioner, Health Inclusion Team, Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

How did you get in to nursing?

I didn’t want to do odd jobs working in the Post Office and as a secretary anymore. I had a passion for health, I was an HCA and I thought ‘I’m going into nursing’.

How has your carer developed?

I’ve been in a few different areas. When I qualified, I was in a hospital, working on an A&E receiving ward, working with all the patients coming through. Four years later I went out into the community, first as a trainee practice nurse, and then I found a job working in a drug advisory service, which first introduced me to working with people who use substances, and are homeless.
