We are currently recruiting for a lovely, independent, family run practice in Norfolk who are looking for a permanent Registered Veterinary Nurse to join their friendly close-knit team on a full-time basis. 
The Practice:
The practice prides themselves on their friendly and professional staff who have a wide range of knowledge and experience which, combined with their purpose-built surgery, means the practice can provide a complete range of medical and surgical services for all pets and exotic animals. The practice invests in their employees and has an in-house Lecture Room for Continued Professional Development Lectures for vets and nurses and client education evening. The practice also has great facilities including:
24/7 Out of Hours Emergency Service
Separate Waiting Areas for Cats, Dogs and Exotic Pets
15minutes Consultations (longer for referrals)  
Nurse Clinics
2 dedicated operating theatres. 
Orthopaedic Surgery
Separate cat, dog and exotic wards
Separate Isolation ward for infectious cases. 
Nebulisation and oxygen therapy for pets with breathing difficulties.
Urine analysis including crystal detection, Blood analysis (requiring only 0.1ml of blood making it suitable for even tiny patients) 
Digital x-ray, Ultrasound machine, Blood pressure and ECG monitoring.
Hip and Elbow Scoring 
PETS Passports
The Role: 
This is a full-time role working 39 hours/4.5 days per week, on rota’d shifts between 8:30 am and 7.00 pm. There is an out of hours rota of 1:4, but this tends to be very quiet as the vets take care of inpatients as well as answering incoming phone calls. There is a weekend rota of 1:4, working from 8:30 am to 2.00 pm and remaining on call for the rest of the day on both Saturday and Sunday. When working the weekend, the nurse will only be required to work 4 days the following week. The practice performs almost everything in house so there are plenty of interesting medical and surgical cases as well as a range of nurse clinics including weight clinics, senior and new pet checks, laser therapy sessions etc. Nurses will help with consulting, care for inpatients, some reception work as well as all general nursing duties. 
The Candidate: 
The practice has a friendly and supportive team and are looking for the right nurse to join them. The ideal candidate will work well as part of the team but also be happy to work independently, having already had some previous practice experience. In return, the practice is looking to offer a generous salary, RCVS and BVNA fees paid for, and 28 days holiday (including bank holidays). The practice is keen for their new team member to develop any particular areas of interest and build the services and care available to clients.
