Carly Gudgion, Brisbane, QLD (posted 4th April) Trainee Vet Nurse with Experience

I am a vet nurse currently looking for a full or part time position in the Brisbane area. Small animal GP preferred, ideally south of the river, but anywhere within an hour radius of Brisbane considered. 

I am currently 2 years into my Certificate IV, but actually have a total of 6 years veterinary industry experience. Three of these years were spent at a private practice in the UK where I began my training. I am very experienced in reception and admin, and completely confident with clients in any situation, having gained most of my experience in very busy clinics in low socioeconomic areas, as well as outside of the industry in customer service roles. Fully versed in all nursing tasks within small animal gp: scintillating surgery prep, titillating anaesthetic monitoring, tantalising blood drawing and running, climactic catheter placement, exhilarating x-ray taking, epic animal handling (some *may* have called me 'The Cat Whisperer', but I have no comment on that...) - with my preference on low stress handling techniques, and total perfectionism in cleaning. Those whose nurses aren't ready for this level of cleanliness need not apply.

I have been using RXWorks for the past three years, but have experience using Jupiter and am a very quick learner if your clinic uses a different program altogether.

I am looking for a clinic that has a good, strong (A) team, and are looking for someone to complete their work family (because that is what this industry desperately requires!). I strongly believe that the team with the strongest bonds do the(ir) best work and consequently have the highest standards of care for their patients. This is overall most important to me.

Availability: Mon-Fri daylight hours preferable

Ann Parkins, Brisbane North, QLD (posted 6th March) Cert IV Veterinary Nurse 

Hi, My name is Ann and I am a Cert IV qualified Veterinary Nurse on Brisbane's north side seeking full time or part time or casual employment preferably either a large referral hospital or emergency hospital but will also consider general practice clinics for the right position.

I am currently employed as a full time level 4 Veterinary Nurse in a small animal (predominantly cats and dogs) general practice clinic on Brisbane's North Side. I have performed and am confident in most general nursing tasks, reception and client interaction. I have also completed 4 months maternity cover as Practice Manager working in conjunction with the Head Vet and Head Office staff as well as previous 8 months experience fulfilling voluntary work placement with BVSC + The Animal Hospital.
I am seeking a position preferably within a referral/specialist or emergency hospital in the North Brisbane area, however I am looking for an employer that will be as dedicated to my career progression as I am through further training and guidance and therefore will consider moving to another general practice clinic for the right position. 
My long term career goal has always been to work in a specialist or emergency hospital, with a keen interest in oncology and I feel that I am now at a stage in my career where this move is now possible.
I am an extremely motivated and determined team player however work just as well autonomously.

I look forward to hearing from potential employers should a position become available.
Kind Regards
Ann Parkins
