This is an exciting role at the heart of the hospital where we deliver high standards of nursing care to our patients. Caring for each patient individually in your allocated ward, which will include administering medications, fluid therapy, placing catheters, managing urinary catheters, feeding tubes and wound drains. When working on procedures it will involve assisting the vet, monitoring anaesthetics, taking x-rays and helping to coordinate the days. We support each other throughout the day to nurse the patients to the highest standards. You will be working with a team of 6 nurses providing nursing care for inpatients both in first opinion and referral wards. Assisting with first opinion procedures, as well as coordinating the running of the day alongside the vet. The hours for this role are Saturday 10.30am to 10.30pm and Sunday 9.30am to 9.30pm.
Pride Veterinary Centre offers a range of state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. Our diagnostics and treatment are second to none and we have many highly trained and experienced nurses to ensure that our patients receive the very best treatment. We offer both primary care and a specialist-led referral service in a range of disciplines, and due to an increasing caseload, we are able to offer exciting nursing opportunities. Each case is interesting and varied, and should you wish to work in our hospital, referral experience is not essential as we welcome the opportunity to provide training for the perfect candidates. What we do ask for is enthusiasm, an excellent work ethic, team spirit and a passion for clinical excellence. The team is friendly, supportive and passionate about providing the highest standard of care to our in-patients. Each day is different and we are always expanding our knowledge and learning new skills.
