Job Ref:
My client in Abbotkerswell is looking for a positive, hardworking and keen to learn full time Registered Veterinary Nurse. They aim to maximise the use of their skilled nursing team and encourage them to grow and learn whilst they work. There will be opportunities to potentially learn new anaesthesia skills and hopefully encourage a successful candidate to blossom into being a confident nurse with advanced anaesthesia skills. The role will include setting up specialist theatres, getting kits ready, calculating & administering medications, fluid calculations, placing catheters, learning advanced anaesthesia techniques (including the use of neuromuscular blockade) and implementing them, use of ventilators (full training given), use of multiparameter monitors, endoscope maintenance (with training) along with general nursing duties. This position offers a good opportunity for learning and growth with full support from experienced Qualified RVN's and referral specialists.
My client has a purpose built facility within an Old cider works. The nursing team are trained in all aspects of hospital work, this includes use of advanced anaesthesia techniques (full supported training is provided). The surgery load is predominantly Ophthalmology based but the team is also involved a mixture of first opinion small animal surgery and surgery referral services for Laparoscopy, Endoscopy, soft tissue and some orthopaedics. Further facilities include CT, ultrasound, digital radiography and dental radiography and Endoscopy suite along with a visiting referral Cardiology service. The team at the hospital work fantastically well and are also very welcoming to new members. They pride themselves in having made adjustments to the nursing rota to try and encourage "down-time" where possible, so their weekend cover is split so you either cover a Saturday (when the practice is only open on a Saturday morning then it is inpatient cover) or a Friday/Sunday (which is just inpatient care) Their first opinion out of hours is located to an external Emergency service which means the nursing teams do not do out of hours’ phone answering. The practice consists of 6 permanents on site vets with visiting referral cardiology and dental teams plus a visiting physiotherapist. The nursing team consists of seven qualified RVN’s, one student and one ANA.

We are looking for a qualified and RCVS registered Nurse. A positive attitude and enthusiasm to learn with a surgical/anaesthesia interest. This doesn’t mean you must have existing advanced anaesthesia knowledge, but you must be keen to learn about it. The majority of the nursing team have come from general first opinion practice backgrounds and offer full training and support in any areas that you are unfamiliar with. A successful candidate will be a great team player and willing to help out where required if asked. They are offering a competitive salary and will accept negotiable offers in anyone is interested in the role!
