“At London Vet Specialists, I can maintain a great work-life balance whilst also continuing to provide excellent patient care and develop my nursing skills. I enjoy working closely with a highly skilled team who motivate me to reach my best potential.”
-Scarlett Dean, RVN in Internal Medicine
“Having always been passionate about animals of all shapes and sizes since I was young, I discovered the veterinary nursing profession while working within the police service. Witnessing the dedication, love and care the RVNs had for the working police dogs and horses was truly inspiring. Once I learned that I could have a job nursing and caring for animals, I changed careers to pursue veterinary nursing. I became a veterinary receptionist to learn more, where I then trained as an RVN and fell in love with vet nursing.”
-Holly de Stacpoole, RVN in Surgery
