At EAMC we have a number of Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing students doing work placement with us as part of their TAFE training. They are valued members of our team and do a lot of work behind the scenes keeping the hospital clean and our hospital patients comfortable. We enjoy mentoring our students as they follow their dream of a career in animal care.
Thank you to our current students for all your hard work:
Kim, Ashlie B, Maddy, Jazzmine, Bec, Georgie and Kiarni.
