Referral Nurse Internship Opportunities

“…every day I see interesting cases”.

Are you a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) curious about referral work?

Our first Referral Nurse Internship Programme is hurtling to an end. Many of our current Nurse Interns are staying on in permanent roles including ECC, Theatre/Anaesthesia, Cardiology and Wards. By all accounts, the programme has been a great success…

…and so we are planning to repeat it in 2022! The next programme will start early next year.

During this 12-month programme, you will spend time in various services and areas of the hospital. You will be trained and supported by our Nurse Training Coordinator, Senior Nurses and other mentors.

The 12-month internship caters for qualified veterinary nurses with no prior referral experience and aims to equip them with referral-specific skills.

“Visiting the different departments of the referral hospital is helping me figure out which areas I enjoy most. This will hopefully help me decide which route I want to take my nursing career in and whether I want to specialise.”

The aims of the programme are to:

Provide the opportunity for RVNs to advance their Day One skills and competencies.
Produce nurses with the knowledge, skills and ability for referral level nursing.
Our Nurse Interns experience all aspects of referral nursing in a safe and controlled way.

Having a learning and growth mindset is one of our core values.
