Night Nurse

£22,459 to £26,111  | Full Time  | Pride Veterinary Centre – Derby


Pride Veterinary Centre offers a range of state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. Our diagnostics and treatment are second to none and we have many highly trained and experienced nurses to ensure that our patients receive the very best treatment.

We strive to deliver world class patient care and our fantastic facilities provide a superb care environment, including 13 consultation rooms, 7 hospital wards, 5 theatres, full advanced imaging suite, 3 ultrasound rooms, an endoscopy suite, hydrotherapy pool and treadmills and dedicated chemo & radio-iodine treatment rooms define the setting.


The team

It takes a very special person to work nights. Could that be you? Working 7 nights on followed by 14 nights off, you will be in the same team every time, so you really get the opportunity to bond as a cohesive force.

Night work doesn’t include any of the regular appointments or animal MOTs. It’s very dependant on what arrives at the Practice on any given evening, or what cases there are already within our wards requiring care, so this role would suit someone who likes both a varied and reactive environment.

The team currently consists of a Vet, 2 Nurses, 2 Kennel Assistants and one intern. We also have students on rotation from the University of Nottingham. Due to an increased caseload we are adding an additional nurse into each night team to ensure the care remains high.


The role

Our Night Nurses assist the Night Veterinary Surgeon with any medical or surgical procedure that needs to be performed. Under the guidance of the Veterinary Surgeon and in accordance with individual experience, our nurses can perform schedule 3 procedures.

Responsibilities are numerous and varied so a great deal of flexibility and patience is required, in addition to being able to maintain records accurately and administer medications correctly.

All newly hospitalised cases must be passed over to a Scarsdale vet the following morning.
