There are various possibilities to become a veterinary nurse. For example, you can work for a private veterinarian, where you will be the veterinarian’s right hand. The tasks you will have to perform here are usually very variable: helping with the administration, receiving clients, keeping animals, assisting the vet with examinations and operations, etc… Most private veterinarians are looking for someone who can assist him/her a little within all areas. This is ideal for veterinarian assistants who like variety and practical work, but also deal with administration. It is important that the patient files are well monitored and replenished at all times, as well as the medicine supply.
Group practices are often looking for one or more veterinarian assistants to further advance their practice. Group practices are also usually looking for veterinarian assistants who are flexible and can help in all areas.
On the other hand, there are also practices that keep this rather separate and look for both people to do administrative work and take care of the welcome, and people who help on the work floor.
Of course, there are also animal clinics that are looking for extra helping hands. Here, too, the tasks may be cohesive or rather separate. Within clinics, more surgeries are usually performed, which means that people are often looking for animal carers to help with the preparation and aftercare of patients. Of course, this also involves a great deal of administration, which is also an important responsibility.
