Lisa Harrison, Werribee & Surrounds, VIC (posted 19th January) Qualified Vet Nurse

I'm a recent graduate of Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing seeking casual/ft/pt employment.

I'm incredibly motivated and driven to improve on the foundation skills that I picked up during my 2 years of placement at Lara Pet Hospital, Lost Dog's Home and Belarine Veterinary Practice. I was heavily involved in anaesthetic monitoring (especially in my 2nd year), pre-operative and post-operative patient care, administering medications and patient restraint.

I'm compassionate and dedicated to delivering a high standard of patient care, where I lack in experience I more than make up for with my willingness to learn and develop my skills in the workplace. I'm friendly and work very well in a team.

I'm currently working casual shifts at Hanrob Pet hotels as a Pet Welfare Attendant, I am also a foster carer for cats and kittens through Purrs of Point Cook for the past three years.

I'm available immediately, I have my own car and P2 licence so I'm happy to travel within reason.

Referees and CV available on request
I can be contacted on 0413 880 544 or via email lisa-harrison@live.com.au at any time 

Thank you for your consideration, I look forward to hearing from you!

Belinda Barrow, Melbourne (posted 8th January)

Hello, My name is Belinda.
I am a young and motivated individual with a passion for animals large and small and their welfare. I am keen to work in an environment that focuses on team support and working as one to provide care to cats and dogs, while also raising awareness about animal health and well being.
In February 2016, I began the Associate Degree of Veterinary Nursing through Melbourne Polytechnic. This has given me the opportunity to learn the necessary practical and theoretical skills required to be a veterinary nurse. Through multiple clinical placements this course has allowed me to gain confidence in performing a multitude of practical skills including; Reception, surgery, patient care, cleaning, handling and animal behaviour. These opportunities have allowed me to experience working in the professional and fast-paced environment of the Veterinary industry. Placement has encouraged my professional growth and emboldened my passion for animals.
The experience I gained from placement has allowed me to gain employment at Karingal Vet Hospital in a range of capacities from surgical nurse to consulting. Along with reception and client interactions. This position has allowed me to improve and learn more about nursing and solidify the knowledge that I have.
I am also interested in completing the third year that has recently been put into place for the Associate Degree, resulting in the final qualification being a Bachelor Degree of Veterinary Nursing through Melbourne Polytechnic/ La Trobe University. I believe this final year will only add to the skills I have and provide a wide range of experience and new learning opportunities.
I think I would be a great fit within a team because I am a confident and skilled team player who is also able to work autonomously when required. I am flexible, outgoing and am confident with client based interactions and office based duties.

I currently have casual work with Karingal but am looking for something more permanent/ consistent hours so that I am able to study further.

I am extremely passionate about working with animals and will work my hardest to have a high level of understanding and knowledge of the workplace and hope that you will give me an opportunity to enhance my skills in this important area. 

I can confidently restrain animals, carry out cleaning duties, feed animals, and many other nursing duties such as acts of being a receptionist. As fresh out of year 12 and ready to study, I am still developing skills required of a veterinary nurse, and I believe I am confident enough to gain these skills quickly.

Hi! My name is Rebecca and I graduate this December so I am seeking any casual, part time or full time position as a Veterinary Nurse. I have work experience from three veterinary clinics through kennel hand positions and work experience through training. I may not have years of experience like other candidates but I have lots of experience in other industries as well that make me unique and provide me with skills and abilities other candidates may not have. I would love to work in a small practice south of the river, but I do love and have most my experience in large emergency hospitals. I am easy going, bubbly, hard working and easy to approach. Please contact me for a copy of my cover letter and resume on "beca_jade@hotmail.com" or contact me on 0474 862 500. Thankyou
