Qualified Veterinary Nurse

Qualified Veterinary Nurse

Description of Practice

We require a qualified listed veterinary nurse to work within the exotic department (Great Western Exotics), located within the multidisciplinary Vets Now Referral Hospital in Swindon, Wiltshire. The position (hours and days negotiable) would suit an experienced RVN with prior exotics experience, to nurse our referral and first opinion exotic case load. The hospital has an enviable clinical kit which includes; MRI and CT scanner, digital radiography, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, surgical suite, ultrasound suite, bespoke exotic wards and dedicated OOH team (we offer 24hr exotic cover).

Your duties will involve clinical nursing of our exotic patients including; monitoring of anaesthesia, radiography, medication, handling and husbandry of a wide variety of exotic in-patients (birds, reptiles and mammals) . There are day to day responsibilities for running and maintaining the exotic wards and equipment, and opportunities to cover weekday holidays and sick leave for other team members if you so wish. We offer a dynamic, supportive working environment with abundant learning opportunities and scope for further qualifications in exotics if desired.

Qualifications Required
This role requires a level of autonomy being that you may be the only VN working alongside our clinicians on any given day - thus we require a qualified, listed and experienced veterinary nurse with exotic knowledge and practical capabilities
