Caroline Winczura, Berwick, Melbourne, VIC (posted 26th February) Trainee Vet Nurse
'Volunteer Student Vet Nurse'
Hello my name is Caroline Winczura, i am 19 years old. I am commencing my first class of vet nursing on the 27th of February and currently have a volunteering position at noble park animal hospital which i complete my 15 hours of voluntary work weekly. Unfortunately there is not enough work for me to continue to learn due to the size of the clinic. I am only able to volunteer in this clinic for the next month and looking for a new long term volunteer position so i can continue and gain the knowledge i need for my studies next month at Box hill institute.
I am located in the Berwick region of Melbourne and have my own transport therefore distance is not an issue.
I have worked at Noble Park animal hospital for the last few months and have picked up the basics from watching and taking part in surgeries and animal care. I have had experience with domestic pets for as long as i can remember therefore have developed a passion for vet nursing at a young age.
My future goals consist of becoming a vet nurse and explore the workforce with devotion to help animals with pure love and dedication for the rest of my career.
I hope that i can make some kind of impression on somebody to give me a chance and take me on to experience the wonderful world of vet nursing to continue to learn about what i love most and can't live without.
Thank you for your time.

I completed 2 years in practice and was on my way to sitting my 1st year exams before we emigrated. I have been caught up in the mining industry (Perth based) since I accepted my first Australian job and have always had a yearning to get back to the veterinary industry I started in and loved being a part of.

Emily, Sunshine Coast to Brisbane, QLD (posted 27th January) Entry Level Vet Nurse
My name is Emily; I am nineteen years old and I am seeking placement to continue my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.
After taking the majority of 2014 to reassess and consider my study options while continuing to work part-time, I have decided that there is no other place my heart nor mind would rather be than working with animals.
Ever since I was a child, growing up on a farm raising and caring for animals of all kinds and needs became a second nature to me. I believe that us as mankind can learn so very much from our animal companions - the most precious of all being how to love another unconditionally.
In the interests of learning more from all of these creatures both large and small, I am writing to request that you consider taking me on as a trainee Veterinarian Assistant. I am currently enrolled in the 2015 Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing through Brisbane Tafe, a course which requires a minimum of 15 hours per week of practice in a local Veterinary Surgery.
This experience would be so very rewarding for me and the potential future I am endeavouring to achieve in this career path. I am a conscientious, self-confessed perfectionist who strives for excellence in any challenge I am faced with in a professional and diligent manner. I acknowledge that many challenges within your surgery are to be expected, but I recognise these potential adversities and trust in my confidence with animals to consider myself both mentally and emotionally prepared.
If accepted, I intend to continue working part-time, but my studies are my priority and will put this experience before any other employment. I appreciate the demand for such positions.
Thankyou so much for your consideration !

I am currently undertaking a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and am consequently seeking a work placement (willing to travel to anywhere within a 60km radius of Coolangatta in both QLD and NSW). Due to my current experience in dealing with and caring for animals, study of animal biology and infectious disease, as well as my passion to care for all animals, I believe I would be a valuable veterinary nurse student at your practice and more than capable of completing all that was required of me. Despite the fact that I am not yet qualified, I do not think you would find my presence an inconvenience or burden, but rather, believe you would more likely find me to be a quite capable, helpful and valuable asset.
I volunteer weekly (and have for several years) at both the Tweed Shire Pound and at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Animal Hospital. During my volunteering I am responsible for feeding and nursing animals, cleaning enclosures, holding and restraining animals, preparation of medications and often actively medicating animals. Furthermore, I often observe surgery on sick or injured wildlife, as well as euthanasia when required.
Not only have I acquired much experience with animals, but also with members of the public. As a volunteer I have consulted with individuals and families and have aided and advised in the decision of responsible pet ownership, as well as often help address any questions that members of the public may have. I have also acquired customer service skills through years of casual employment in the hospitality industry.
I have much more experience and a history of studies that are not discussed here due to length issues.

Georgia Bozzi, Brisbane, QLD (posted 12th January) Entry Level Vet Nurse
Hello, My name is Georgia and I am 20 years old. I am aiming to begin the Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing through Brisbane North Institute of Tafe in January 2015. In order to do this I require a minimum of 15 hours per week in a clinic, I am interested in full-time, part-time or casual work and can commence work as soon as required.
Since leaving high school I have done 1 and a half years of the Bachelor or Applied Science, majoring in Veterinary technology; but due to personal reasons I had to resign from this course. During my break off from University I have been working at the pet pad which is a dog grooming/dog daycare/pet supplies store and I am very eager to re-enter into the veterinary industry.
Over my time working at the pet pad I have gained many valuable skills which I can contribute to a veterinary clinic. These include restraining dogs, hydro bathing, knowledge of dog behaviour, fish, dog and cat food, worming/flea and tick products and pet supplies. I also have horses, dogs and a cat and have had chickens, geese and cattle which have given me a broad knowledge on the care required from different species. In addition to my knowledge of animals I have much experience in dealing with customers. My duties are to greet and serve customers and maintain and form bonds with customers, I believe this to be an important asset to a veterinary clinic. I also manage customers’ accounts, book grooms, call customers and operate the cash register/eftpos. I have managed the store for an open and close and am very comfortable in doing this.
If you would like a copy of resume please feel free to email or call me. Thank you for your time, I would really appreciate any interest as I am very eager to begin my training.
