Carlo passes on nursing wisdom to next generation
Carlo Myles started nursing as a shy 19-year-old. Fast forward to today, and he's climbed his way up the ladder into a senior role with Mater Education.
The now 35-year-old began his career as an Enrolled Nurse at Mater.
"I'm an only child and I've never been responsible for anyone else, I've never even had to feed or bathe anyone so starting nursing was hard," he said.
"But since then I've said yes to a lot of things and I've tried it all. I was a NUM in my early 30s and I've held a vast number of different roles here at Mater."
At the moment Carlo works in dual roles, as an Education Coordinator for Ambulatory & Outpatient Services and a Clinical Nurse for Mater Hospital Brisbane's Department of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine.
"I love seeing the 'a-ha' moments with staff development and I also love helping patients to manage their illness at home," Carlo said.
"I like influencing how others nurse."
In his spare time, Carlo likes to unleash his creativity.
"My passion is dancing and I do urban, commercial and Reggaeton dancing several times a week," he said.
"Sometimes I do competitions which helps with building friendships as well."
Happy International Nurses Day to Carlo and all of our Mater Education nurse educators!
