Opportunities are available for experienced and qualified equine vet nurses at a practice in Victoria. Become part of a team nursing with a wide variety of patients and cases.

There are a variety of nursing roles that are stimulating and fast-paced but well supported by an experienced team of specialists, interns, nurses and horse handlers.

The role is 100% equine. Applicants must hold a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing (or equivalent qualification), have prior experience in an on-farm equine stud or equine hospital, and have the ability to work confidently around young foals. In addition to this, the successful candidate will be able to prioritise and work effectively within a team.

The development of a state-of-the-art surgical facility was completed in early 2023, enabling the team to offer a dedicated 24/7 surgical service. The hospital also houses a 10-horse surgery barn to accommodate the surgical cases, offering effective biosecurity between elective procedures and hospitalised patients. This hospital and intensive care facility also provide a 24/7 intensive care service supported by skilled specialists, veterinarians and a dedicated nursing team.
