Helping you thrive in your new ECC role
Moving from daytime veterinary nursing to ECC is an exciting change. You’ll help us save pets’ lives from day one, enjoy a diverse caseload and garner loads of new skills, all while enjoying the work-life balance you deserve.
We know working nights and dealing with emergencies can be daunting, which is why we’ve launched Nursing Edge.
With its combination of online lectures, practical skills training and mentoring work in your relevant clinic, Nursing Edge is a comprehensive induction programme, covering all you need to know to thrive in your new role as an ECC vet nurse.
Any qualified veterinary nurse is eligible, whether you’re fresh out of college, you’ve been in daytime practice for 20 years or you’re re-entering the profession after a leave of absence.

There'll be busy days and there'll be quiet days but one thing's for sure: as an ECC vet nurse, no two days will ever be the same.
Help maintain clinical excellence and drive improvements in nursing standards. As head vet nurse, you'll lead vet nurses, ACAs and reception teams while managing the day-to-day running of your clinic.

Recognising hard work is important to us. As a Nursing Edge Nurse, you'll get a competitive salary from day one (which includes training), plus a first-class benefits package, including:
