WAVES

Internal Medicine Nurse

WAVES is a specialist veterinary hospital located in Success, WA. We are seeking applications from an experienced nurse to assist with the smooth running of the medicine service for regular weekly shifts and more during busier times and for annual / personal leave.

At WAVES you will get to do real nursing. What we do here is important and makes a real difference to animal’s lives. With support and training, you’ll get more responsibility and be able to influence what happens with our patients. You’ll be giving animals what they really need to the highest standards of care and you will know you are doing the best for the animals. You need to be calm, organised and thorough. You’ll be keeping everything under control so our vets can get on with their work as efficiently as possible.

WAVES is committed to finding the right team to staff our hospital over the long term. We are looking for dedicated and skilled nurses who are genuinely interested in the science of veterinary medicine and are willing to consistently provide quality patient care in a sometimes hectic environment. You need to have a Certificate IV in veterinary nursing or equivalent and at least 2 years of full-time experience in general practice. Previous experience in a referral setting would be an advantage; however your approach is the most important thing to us. You will get training, continuing education and workplace support if you have the right attitude, but only lack the experience of working in a referral hospital.

The position is initially CASUAL with potential for permanent part-time for the right candidate. The hours of between the hours of 8am and 6pm on Monday to Friday with no evening or weekend work.

Your routine on a typical day will involve treating and monitoring medical inpatients, restraining patients, assisting with and performing routine nursing procedures such as blood collection, catheter placement and using in-house laboratory equipment, but also assisting with exciting medical procedures such as endoscopy, CSF taps and bone marrow biopsies. With support you must be able to prioritise your workload, keep meticulous records on the patients in your care and importantly need to recognise abnormalities in patients’ health status and alert the medicine clinicians accordingly.

Each day you will be working with a team of two medicine clinicians and three other medicine nurses but also a team of other veterinary specialists & nurses throughout the hospital to facilitate patient care. You will need to spot things that require doing and get on with them without being asked. To make sure the hospital keeps running smoothly, you will need to keep the hospital clean, walk dogs to let them stretch their legs and have a sniff, stock shelves, keep the laundry moving and cuddle patients as required. If you have time, you can have a coffee too.

We take recruitment very seriously because we know it is important to get the right people and it’s also important that you are going to like working with us. We want to build up a team of people who will stay for years, and grow with us.

So if you think that you may be the person we are looking for, or you have any questions, please email me at anna@wavets.com.au to find out about our recruitment process and how to apply. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
