We’re growing and we are looking for a fun, happy, caring and super organised (full or part time) qualified veterinary nurse to join our friendly team in Dunfermline.
Do you have excellent time management skills are super organised and love keeping animals healthy and happy?
Would you really love passing on your skills and knowledge to help support the next generation of veterinary nurses?
Do you hate when things run behind, everything’s a bit chaotic and nobody seems to know what anyone else is doing?
Do you love anaesthesia and want to monitor your patients with capnography, blood pressure and pulse oximetry?
Do you have excellent blood sampling, catheter placement and calm patient handling skills?
We are a fast growing, friendly team situated in Dunfermline, just 25 minutes from Edinburgh and we are looking for a happy, fun and super organised Registered Veterinary Nurse that will provide our patients with the highest level of care.
If you are extremely good at keeping things structured and organised, with an interest in anaesthesia and in patient care, then our team, our clients and our patients would love for you to come and join us.
Client, as well as patient care, is a priority so we need someone that will fit with our philosophy that looking out for, and after, each other as colleagues needs to come first.
Once we do that, everything else will fall into place.
Our practice is purpose built and air conditioned with digital xray, CR7 dental xray and dental suite, surgical theatre, ultrasound, on site Idexx H&B / electrolytes and microscopy.
Our patients are regularly monitored under anaesthetic utilising capnography, blood pressure monitoring and pulse oximetry so you will be able to provide an exceptional level of patient care.
We need you to be good at building relationships as you will be working closely with our team (one VN, one SVN, two VCA’s, two vets, two receptionists sounding a bit like noah’s ark!), to help organise and plan the day in line with our practice protocols to ensure everything runs to time, stress levels are at a minimum, patients are well cared for and clients get timely updates on their pets progress.
A major part of the role will involve admitting patients for day procedures (surgeries, dentals, xrays, ultrasound, dynamic blood testing), preparation and monitoring of anaesthetics and then updating owners with reassuring phone calls on their pets progress so strong planning, communication and organisational skills will be essential.
In addition to week days, 1 or 2 weekends a month (negotiable) you will perform nurse clinics which will include 6 month health checks, weight checks for new puppies and kittens, post-
operative checks, 2nd vaccinations and educating clients on the best preventative care products for their pets.
