Overview: For the last 4 years I have been working as a Veterinary Nursing Assitant then I was lucky enough to be offered a student placement and I have just completed my first year as a student veterinary nurse. Some duties monitoring anaesthestics, preparing animals for surgery, taking blood samples, dispensing medications, putting in IV catheters, running nurse clinics etc. Since obtainining my degree I have worked in various paid and volunteer roles. I started as a volunteer aquarist for 2 years before obtaining paid employement as a zookeeper for another 2 years. During that time I also volunteered with the RSPCA, RSPB, WWF, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and British Divers Marine Life Rescue. During my time as a zookeeper I came across an opportunity to work abroad with Dolphins, which was my dream job, so I moved to the Cayman Islands to do a 6 month internship.
