Veterinary Nurses are the backbone of every veterinary clinic. It’s a job that requires skill, dedication and a love for animals.
As a Veterinary Nurse, you’ll be more than just the veterinarian’s assistant. You’ll have a job with a huge variety of tasks and responsibilities – and patients!
Each day will be different. As the surgical nurse, you’ll be monitoring anaesthesia, assisting in surgery, sterilising surgical instruments, performing wound care and even post-operative rehabilitation. When in the wards, you’ll be caring for a wide range of animals and doing things like administering medications, feeding, providing critical care nursing and of course – providing pats and comfort.
Veterinary Nurses get to work with animals all day, and people too! If you’re out the front of the clinic you’re likely to be helping assist the vet with consults, scheduling appointments, providing animal care advice to owners, client counselling and more.
Veterinary Nursing is a rewarding job where no two days are the same.
