June

Vet nurse

"If you have a patient under anaesthetic you can't just walk away... it's not a nine to five job."

June works as a vet nurse for Meadows Veterinary Practice in Inverurie.

 She started working there as a trainee student when she was in sixth year at school. She then worked full-time as a vet nurse while studying for her NVQ in veterinary nursing.

‘I definitely preferred the hands-on approach because then you could relate cases you were seeing come in every day to cases you were studying at college,’ she says.
