Samantha Posnakidis, Adelaide Western/Southern suburbs, SA (posted 9th September) Qualified Vet Nurse

Hello, my name is Samantha Posnakidis. I am currently studying full time at The University of Adelaide (Bachelor of Veterinary BioScience) and completed my certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2019.

Although I do not have professional experience, I pride myself on my ability to learn new skills quickly and confidently. I gained a lot of practical skills and experience during my time at TAFE as well as during work placement undertaken at Veterinary Ophthalmic Referrals. The skills I learnt at TAFE include anaesthetic monitoring, placing IV catheters, dental scaling and polishing, advising clients of post-op home care and preventative care advice, as well as many other general veterinary nursing skills.

I am seeking casual / part-time work (15-25 hours) to suit my full-time university timetable, however my schedule is flexible, and I am available on weekends. I am preferably looking for work in western/southern suburbs, however I have a car and drivers license so am able to travel further if required.
