Referral Nursing Post Registration Programme

Join The Team

We have an exciting opportunity to join the Referral Nursing Team as our busy multidisciplinary hospital is expanding. We are looking to hire an enthusiastic Registered Veterinary Nurse to embark on our post registration programme.   

Our unique year-long programme is designed to equip newly qualified nurses (0-12m registered) with the skills and knowledge to begin an exciting career in referral nursing. During the programme you will rotate around departments for a total of three months per area including Wards, Theatre, Medicine and dentistry, with a designated skills supervisor on hand to offer you support.   

In addition to the clinical experience and training you receive you will also attend five professional development days (PDD) which will accelerate your career within referral nursing. These will include: 

  • Understanding team dynamics 
  • Communication training 
  • Quality Improvement Skills 
  • Human Factors and Patient Safety 
  • Support in creating CPD and training activities 
  • Career progression 
  • Professional resilience 
  • Clinical Skills, such as CPR   

You will also have access to a generous CPD budget and an additional CPD allowance. This coupled with our fantastic starting salary, annual leave allowance and employee benefits package will allow you to start your career in referral nursing in the best way possible.   

By the end of the programme we hope to have supported our newly qualified nurses to become fully fledged members of the referral team who are confident in their ability to perform all aspects of referral nursing, who are able to contribute to QI initiatives, support the delivery of CPD and training activities and support other new nurses joining the business.   

Please get in touch with us to apply, or feel free to send any questions to amy.dutton@eastcottvets.co.uk before 31.10.2021.
