Vicki Beinhart, Gold Coast, QLD (posted 22nd May) Experienced Vet Nurse
My name is Vicki; I'm a uni student and part time/casual vet nurse seeking a new placement, as a combination of budget cuts and a fellow nurse returning from maternity leave has left my current small practice unable to offer enough hours for all of us. I currently have two and a half year's experience in routine small-animal surgery, and a six month's experience in emergency. I still feel like I'm learning new things every day I work, but I have plenty of experience with most nursing and reception skills, am confident with and friendly to clients, and am experienced with Cornerstone and RXWorks programs. I work well as part of a team and independently, and am always trying to learn more about my job and the veterinary field to best care for my patients and represent my clinic. I'm keen to continue within the small animal or emergency field, but would also be very excited to branch out into large animal or exotic nursing or care-taking if the opportunity arises. Ideally, I would work around the Gold Coast, but would be willing to travel up closer to Brisbane for the right position. Weekend and after-hour times work well with me, but I'm also able to build my school schedule to best fit work hours.
I can be reached at 04 04208789 or at email@example.com. Thank you!

Kim McGowan, Sunshine Coast / Nth Brisbane, QLD (posted 12th April) Entry Level Vet Nurse
I am a 21 year old female looking for a job in a Veterinary clinic on the Sunshine Coast/North Brisbane.
Qualifications: Animal Health Care Course. Currently doing my foundation diploma in Animal Science. Certificate 2 in Customer Service.
Work Experience: At Maroochy Vet and Maroochy Boarding Kennels.

Sophie Foot, Australia-wide (posted 12th April) Overseas Qualified and Experienced Vet Nurse
Aged 21 years old, looking for work anywhere in Australia, to start at the end of May/beginning of June. Currently living and working in Devon, UK.
I first started my training with the RCVS gaining my Level 2 and Level 3 theory certificates but then went on to qualify this year from the Australian College of Veterinary Nursing with a Cert IV, I have 6 years very hands on experience at a hospital branch working both day and night shifts, nursing critical and non critical cases. I am very familiar with digital x-ray, endoscopes, ultrasound, ECG, diathermy, Idexx laboratory equipment. I have been using Robovet by vet solutions for the last 6 years but i am very adaptable with computer programs.
I am able to take blood, place animals on drips (including placing the i/v line), place urinary catheters, i am able to intubate animals (done on an emergency basis), i have also been involved with many blood transfusions. i am very familiar with most Idexx laboratory equipment so very adapt at running in house blood samples/urine samples.
I am a very compassionate/confident nurse with a bubbly personality, Ilove all animals great and small. I loved working my night shifts because of the variety of cases I saw and treated. Working nights you are left on your own in the building all night to nurse all the in-patients, answer the out of hours phone calls and triage cases- calling the vet in as and when they are needed, so I am more than capable of working on my own.
Working days meant working as part of a team - I also enjoy this, as a busy hospital branch we had between 10-20 operations per day to see in, operate on, and discharge at the end of the day, this didn't include all the inpatients we had in, so working as a team was extremely important.
If you have any opportunities for me then please feel free to call me on- +447803373134 or email me- firstname.lastname@example.org for a CV and covering letter.

Hello my name is Rachel Quick. I am 24 years old, and a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse through the Royal College of Veterinary Nurses. I finished my training in January 2011 after 2 1/2 years of hard work and commitment. I trained and worked in a very busy practice of 11 nurses and 22 veterinary surgeons, my involvement within the practice on a day to day basis consisted of monitoring anaesthesias, IVFT, dentals, taking blood samples and running them in the laboratory, packing surgical kits and assisting in orthopaedic, elective and emergency procedures. I have also worked with a variety of anaesthesia gases such as Sevoflurane, Isoflurane and Nitrous Oxide. I have kept calm under pressure and dealt with a variety of emergencies from GDV’s, Exlap’s, RTA’s and caesareans. Since qualifying I have expanded my knowledge and began to specialise in exotic species such as reptiles, chelonians and rabbits. I have recently rescued a pair of Green Water Dragons one male and one female they are a very happy pair called Marley and Chubbins. At my last practice I began researching the training of becoming a surgical nurse allowing me to perform minor operations.
Prior to this I was employed at Monkey World Ape Rescue for two years as a primate keeper looking after a variety of different primates and understanding animal welfare and diets whilst working along side the duty veterinary surgeon. This enabled me to assist with operations, medicate and monitor anaesthesia and recovery.

I have always worked in small animal clinics. While I was working, I had the opportunity to improve my knowledge in feline medicine in the first year; and during the second in small animal medicine in general.
I have learnt to work independently and under pressure. I can confidently visit patients, take samples, prepare and interpret blood count and biochemical tests, prepare and read blood slides, set up and administer therapies, take, develop and read Rx. In surgery I assisted and conducted small surgeries on my own. I am able to monitor anesthesia, prepare and administer anesthetics.
I am determined and I am willing to learn and improve my knowledge, and therefore I am looking for a nurse position to acquire familiarity with veterinary settings and practices in Australia. I hope to be able to sit the Accreditation Exam at some point in the future.
I arrived in Melborne in December and I am looking for a full time Vet Nurse/Technician position, but a part time, casual or locum will be also considered. I am available to work anywhere in Australia in case I find a good position.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 0447586336.
It would be great to hear from you.
