Jess completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and won the Veterinary Nurses Council of Australia’s (VCNA) 2016 Student Vet Nurse of the Year. She was nominated by Our Vet’s Head Veterinarian.
Completing her Veterinary Nurse placement at Our Vet in South Morang, Jess said, “I am very lucky that my workplace supervisor is very easy to work with and very supportive of my study. I was very surprised when I received the email regarding my nomination. I still don’t believe that I won and I am truly honoured to be given the award.”
Of studying at Box Hill Institute, Jess says “I have to be very dedicated and make sure I keep on top of my assignments. I love the flexibility of being able to complete my qualification online. Because I am working full time, I don’t have time to go to classes but my teachers are really great. If I have any questions I can send them an email and they are very responsive."
