Park Ridge Animal Hospital, Park Ridge (posted 10th May)

park_ridge_logo

Veterinary Nurse Position - Park Ridge Animal Hospital

When asked “Why work at Park Ridge Animal Hospital” a recently employed vet nurse replied:

“I choose to work at PRAH because I am afforded the time to nurse my patients compassionately every day. The hospital is staffed adequately, and staff absences are covered appropriately.

I feel valued in a team with a clear focus on staff wellness made evident everyday with our 3 breaks and 1 in 6 weekends allowing me to maintain work life balance. The whole team is approachable and friendly and always available to help which means my days are less stressful and more enjoyable! There are even kennel hands and professional cleaners to help maintain the hospital.

All this means I can focus on my patient’s wellbeing and comfort. After all, this is why I became a vet nurse.”

I think this says a lot about what we strive to achieve. The advert is below with the details. Please read it and share it with your Facebook friends. Most importantly, if interested please apply. We don’t need fancy resumes (but some information is required) and are happy to have a confidential no obligation meeting. What is to lose?

An opportunity has become available for a qualified and experienced veterinary nurse to join our dynamic team of over 30 talented and enthusiastic veterinarians, nurses and receptionists.

Park Ridge Animal Hospital and our sister clinic, at nearby Browns Plains, have a passionate nursing team with a mix of vibrant new graduates and highly experienced, extensively trained, supportive senior nurses.  The common goal amongst our fantastic team of nurses is providing exceptional standards of care to all of our small animal patients applying our hospital motto “what’s best for the pet” in every situation.

This is an exciting position in a large and busy vet hospital that will see the successful applicant be tasked with responsibility across all aspects of veterinary nursing. However, we don’t believe you became a vet nurse to answer phones or mop floors. While some of this type of activity is required, we have a team of four dedicated receptionists and cleaners every night to do “the hard yards”.

Sunshine Coast Vets, Pomona (posted 16th April)

sunshine coast vets logo

Vet Nurse/Vet Tech - Great Pay, Great Location, Great Work Life Balance

Small country practice with big, devoted clientele (read our reviews)

The position requires high doses of:

We are not a corporate! Just a young team of super enthusiastic and talented animal lovers who are living our dream. Our small country clinic in the small town of Pomona (close to Noosa....think beautiful beaches / great surf / restaurants / hiking) is as close to James Herriott as you could get! We are solely small animals but also work with several wildlife rescue groups. We aim to be the best employer in the industry with the highest standard of care, best working conditions and best wages available. We have excellent staff retention, already have the best employees and are looking for one more. i.e: You !

Our clinic started in 2010 opening in a small shop in Pomona's main street. After 5 years we had "outgrown" ourselves and shifted to a grand old bank building which we converted to the surgery we have today. Back then we certainly didn't have the effective tick preventatives we have today and there began a tradition of sleeping next to the cage and doing whatever it needed to pull a patient through. Thankfully we don't see nearly as many tick cases today (or yawning) however the same dedication to the care of our patients remains. We don't expect you to sleep by any cages but we do require someone with the same drive and dedication that in many cases is the difference between a precious family member making it back home or not. We have all the usual gadgets (Digital x ray, The latest in House Blood Machines etc) but it's our attitude to what we do that sets us apart. If an animal needs it...it gets done....whether that means enlisting the help of visiting imaging specialists or referral for complicated spinal surgery. Thankfully we have an excellent clientele that allow us to practice "Best practice medicine" ensuring excellent job satisfaction. When $ preclude treatment we are a clinic that has a big heart and always finds a way to help somehow.

Our nurses/techs come from many different backgrounds and countries. Clem our other vet likes cheese for dessert....she's French. Dora loves travelling and tiny houses ...She's from Poland. Becs' got a "Jet Burner stove" and likes hiking...she's from Canada...The rest of us are born and bred Aussies.

We would love to hear from you!

Our Mermaid Vet clinic, centrally located on the Gold Coast, is just a few minutes from the white sands of Mermaid Beach. A veterinary surgery has been established on this site for over forty years. Since purchasing the clinic fourteen years ago, the owners have been successful in growing the practice into one of the most highly respected clinics on the Gold Coast. The clinic is family owned and operated with a belief in placing the patient first by providing the best veterinary care, without the need for ‘over servicing’ or performance reviews. We work hard to provide an environment in which veterinary nurses can enjoy their work every day.

Having the highest quality veterinary equipment means that diagnostic procedures can be efficient and more enjoyable in the day-to-day routine. Our clinic has a dedicated imaging room with DR x-ray and an advanced ultrasound machine. Our DR x-ray machine produces high resolution images in a matter of seconds. We also have an advanced ultrasound sound machine with 3d Doppler that we use routinely, but also provide training for our staff through a visiting ultra-sonographer. Our pathology suite is complete with an Idexx Catalyst biochemistry and Procyte haematology machines – delivering blood tests in approximately 15 minutes. Our dental suite consists of two IM3 dental machine with sub-gingival scalers and is complemented by a wall mounted DR dental x-ray.

We have an outstanding group of nurses with decades of experience between them. They are highly supportive of our staff and take pride in our clinic. Our nurses all excel in various fields that support primary veterinary care including nutrition and behavioural training.

As the practice continues to grow, we require an additional veterinary nurse to fit into our current nursing roster.

All after hours cases are referred to a close by afterhours clinic.

If you are looking for an understaffed practice and the constant pressure of KPI based reviews, then this ISN’T the job for you.

We offer a steady and manageable daily work load with an RDO every week and 30 minutes allocated for lunch every day. Shifts are structured with 5 veterinary nurses working at any one time on week days and 4 veterinary nurses on Saturday mornings. This provides excellent peer support for veterinary nurses and enough time to manage the day to day running of the clinic. All nurses are rotated through surgery, reception and float duties.

Testimonial - My name is Fiona and I have worked at Edmonton Vet Clinic and Cattery for 10 years. I started my vet nursing career here and completed my certificate 4 under the mentorship and instruction of the now current practice manager and co-owner of the clinic.
During my 10 years of employment I have felt so welcomed and nurtured by the team. It is such a lovely environment to work in and we are one big family. I always feel like I can come to work and have something new to do and there is never a dull day. We always have the opportunity to further our skills and the veterinarians are happy to outsource tasks to the nurses and always have faith in our ability to perform the task. We are constantly learning and are always supportive of each other when we are honing in a new skill. Our clients are an integral part of our "family" and we always feel appreciated and loved by our clients, which is testimony to the service and care we provide for them. I can't imagine working anywhere else and I have enjoyed every minute working here and look forward to coming to work every day
