Career profile: Sarah Everett

Sarah Everett, a practice nurse in Govan who runs the Men’s Shed, a project to improve men’s health in the area

Why did you become a nurse?

At school, I really enjoyed biology, and I liked helping people so nursing seemed to be the logical choice. I decided in the last few years at school that’s what I wanted to do.

How has your career developed?

I started off in a neurosurgical unit in Newcastle for a year and half. I then decided I wanted to do my second children’s certificate, so I went back to Glasgow to do that. I worked in the children’s hospital, in the intensive care unit for five years. I then worked abroad in Malaysia for three years as a school nurse. Then I came back and worked very briefly in the pharmaceutical industry for a year, but I didn’t like it. So I then became a practice nurse. I have been one for 17 years, 15 of them have been in this place.
