A huge well done to Wicstun Veterinary Nurse Amy Maskell who graduated from Middlesex University last week.
Amy achieved an excellent grade and alongside her academic studies she has worked hard to gain a significant amount of clinical experience. She hit the ground running at Wicstun and the wait is finally over as she joins the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Veterinary Nurse Register. We couldn’t be more pleased to have her on the team.
Amy tells us that it was quite a challenge to study and work at the same time although she thoroughly enjoyed being in the classroom and on placement. Her plans for the future include further studies and she has a keen interest in rehabilitation nursing. Well done Amy!
Being A Registered Veterinary Nurse
Veterinary Nurses have a key role within practice. Following years of study qualified nurses can undertake minor surgical procedures, monitor anaesthetics, take x-rays, collect blood samples, place intra-venous lines and provide nursing care to a range of animal species, each with unique needs. This list is by no means exhaustive!
Nurses also provide consultation and advisory services for pet owners. Often they are responsible for ensuring that high tech equipment is in safe working order and that clinical areas are kept in ship shape condition.
Wicstun Vets – an accredited Training Practice
Wicstun Vets are an Accredited Training Practice for Veterinary Nurses – this means that we have the appropriate premises, services, equipment and qualified Clinical Coaches to provide practical and theoretical training for nursing students on site.
