Hello! So sorry for such a delay between the previous blog and now! Been busy busy busy here at Ambivet, what with new surgeries and procedures to be helping with and revision for college as my exams creeped ever closer.
Work here has been very enjoyable, even the crazy days. Plenty of surgical procedures to watch such as amputations, exploratory surgery, exotic pets coming in for treatment and lots of x-rays to keep me occupied. This has been great for my NPL work for college! Every day brings a new type of animal in; we've had pets ranging from hamsters to coati's and hedgehogs, from cats to bearded dragons.
College has been great fun the past few blocks and I have been learning more each day I am there. My exams for the end of my first year's training were in June time which were incredibly nerve racking. They're not something to take lightly! I'll be brave and reveal my results to you... There were two exams which both had a pass barrier of 65% Any less then it would be a fail. I managed to pass one with BANG ON 65% which was great and I was very happy! The second exam, however, I was not so lucky. I had failed it at 63% !!! so close but it's not a pass!
I will be re-sitting my failed exam hopefully in November so I shall let you all know how I got on. I will, of course, keep in touch before then. These blogs are hopefully giving you an insite to what it is like here as a veterinary nurse. There is always much to do, lots to see and plenty of great clients and pets to work with!
