The centre is very well equipped with imaging (Siemens 16-slice CT, digital radiography, digital subtraction fluoroscopy, Phillips affinity and POC ultrasound machines, regular off-site access to 3T MRI imaging), critical care (6 new Menios oxygen cages, new Getinge Servo-u ventilator and newly created critical care suite), laboratory (Radiometer blood-gas machine, IDEXX Procyte haematology, Catalyst biochemistry and coagulation machines) and other equipment such as Olympus endoscopy and advanced anaesthetic monitoring.

The Position

The Emergency & Critical Care department at CARE enjoys a consistently busy caseload that encompasses an interesting and broad range of presentations. In this position, you will work with a dedicated and cohesive team of experienced nurses in caring for the cases presenting to, and hospitalised within, the Emergency & Critical Care department. It involves many aspects including: triage, in-patient care, assistance with anaesthesia and procedures, laboratory procedures, discussion of patient progress with owners and occasional reception duties.

The nature of emergency and critical care mandates continuous care and necessarily, this position involves a combination of day, evening, overnight and weekend shifts. The distribution of these shifts within the roster is carefully supervised by highly experienced and understanding nursing managers, who also participate in the roster.

The staff of CARE take pride in the benefits of interdepartmental cooperation in case management.   ICU cases frequently benefit from the contributions of multiple specialist disciplines, as well as the support and guidance of a board-certified emergency and critical care specialist. This collaboration provides an excellent opportunity for learning and case follow-up. Beyond this, continuing education is encouraged through regular tutorials and daily rounds that are provided for the benefit of all staff, including the dedicated teams of Emergency and Critical Care veterinary and nursing interns.

The role can be part-time or full-time, with the emphasis being on finding the right person rather than the specific terms. It is important that the successful applicant embraces our core values, integrates well, and values the pursuit of excellence in client and patient care. They will be experienced, motivated, conscientious, and effective in their written and verbal communication with clients, referring veterinarians and other hospital staff.

About You

Emergency and critical care is typically a fast-paced, demanding, yet intensely rewarding discipline. Nursing in this field commonly attracts those who are not discouraged by these challenges, approaching them with a genuine intent to benefit patient outcomes and naturally cooperate within a team to achieve this. 

Certificate IV in nursing (or equivalent qualification) is a prerequisite foundation. Nursing experience in a multi-specialist or emergency and critical care facility is considered beneficial, but is not critical and is readily overshadowed by enthusiasm and a friendly, team-oriented personality.

Remuneration

CARE ECC nurses are attractively remunerated on a “base plus loading” basis. Base rates are generous, ranging from $26 to $31 per hour, with additional loading applied to long shifts, shifts occurring in the evenings, and shifts on weekends.

Rate of Pay:

Monday to Friday                                              Saturday          Sunday        Public Holiday
Day Shift              Swing Shift       Night Shift                                          
100%                   115%                130%          150%              200%           250%

On shifts with a length exceeding 8 hours, the ninth hour onwards is paid at 150% instead of the above loading rate (unless the above loading rate is higher). On shifts with a length exceeding 11 hours, the twelfth hour onwards is paid at 200% instead of the loading rate.

While shift patterns are variable, on the above basis a permanent full-time ECC nurse can expect to achieve annual remuneration in the range of $78-$90k plus superannuation (or pro rata part time).
