Job Detail

Your role and responsibilities

The Lead Registered Veterinary Nurse (Lead RVN) Theatre and Anaesthesia Nurse role is key to the business’s ability to provide a high level of clinical standards.

As Lead RVN you will ensure that our patients are managed as effectively as possible from a nursing perspective to ensure we deliver outstanding animal welfare and to support the profitability and further growth of the practice.
