I believe I have gained nursing skills and theory that will assist me with a veterinary nursing career, particularly with hands-on positions requiring nursing experience that I can apply to animals.
I am also currently working in the pet retail industry and have been for the past four years; therefore, I have knowledge about animal health care, including a vast knowledge in pharmaceuticals and nutrition.

Brook Kennedy, East Melbourne (posted 2nd July) Entry Level Vet Nurse
My name is Brook Kennedy and I am a passionate, hard-working and determined 23 year old.
I am currently studying Cert IV in Veterinary nursing through open collages, throughout this course I do need to complete 140 hours or work placement. Ideally I would love the opportunity to obtain a trainee ship as a vet nurse or animal attendant so I can continue gaining hands on experience after completing my 140 hours or work placement.
I have only recently moved to St Kilda area of Melbourne from far north Queensland so somewhere on the east side of Melbourne would be ideal, although I do have my own reliable transport so travelling a little will be no issue.
I previously have worked for the RSPCA QLD as an animal attendant. I simply loved this job and everything involved in it. A lot of people think that working with animals is a fun cuddly job but I know everything there is to know about it on the good and not so good side. Working at the RSPCA I gained a lot of skills including cleaning of pens, caring for animals, administering medication and vaccinations, general medical check ups, and also the not so favorable but doable job of Euthanasia.
As I just moved to Melbourne with my husband I have no social life so am available for immediate start of work. I am available 8am-6pm 7 days a week.
I can be contacted by email on firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send through my current resume, or via phone on 0406 866 280.
