Your role and responsibilities 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and enthusiastic qualified Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) to join our vibrant Neurology nursing team working in a busy, purpose-built hospital that is fully equipped with facilities commensurate with a flagship specialist veterinary centre. The position will involve all aspects of nursing care for inpatients.

You will have excellent all-around nursing skills, with a passion and drive for delivering outstanding client and patient care. You will be a team player who enjoys working in a supportive working environment, whilst also being able to use your initiative and challenge the status quo. Referral nursing experience is not necessary, as full training will be provided.

This is a ward-based position that focuses on hands-on, exemplary nursing care based on the individual needs of each patient. The Neurology Nurse is highly involved with all aspects of nursing care for patients with varied neurological conditions, including traumatic brain injuries, inflammatory CNS conditions, seizures and spinal surgeries.
