Veterinary Nurses

Zoe Moore Studying Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing 

Personal passions/ hobbies:

Anything artsy or music related is always fun!

Favourite aspect of working in the veterinary industry:

I have a passion for Emergency and Critical Care because I enjoy the fast paced, technical side of it and I’ve never been afraid to get my hands dirty, but being at Stanthorpe Vet Care has opened my eyes to just how much knowledge there is to soak up in general!

I love working at this clinic because since being here I have been able to continuously develop my knowledge and skills to be able to HELP animals, in whatever situation that may be. It’s made me a better nurse.

Animals are innocent, what happens to them is usually not caused by them making bad decisions and that inspires a great deal of compassion. They rely on us... So I guess my favourite aspect of working in this industry is THAT motivation, to be the best help to them that I could possibly be.

Pets:

Lots!! I’m a sucker and often take home the unwanted ones that wander in here! I’m yet to get a little baby deer though.... that one is definitely on my WANTED list... One day...

Studies

After nearly 10 years experience as a Vet Nurse, I am now finally completing my certificate IV with the A.I.R.C.

Dreams/ goals:

I haven’t decided what I want to be when I grow up...

But I’ve always been interested in doing my Diploma of Veterinary Nursing – Emergency and Critical Care OR Surgical Nursing.

Personal passions/hobbies:

This year my main hobbies have been studying and working! Other than that I love to spend time with my family and friends (and pets of course!). I enjoy playing the piano and guitar, DIY and attempting whip cracking!

Favourite aspect of working in the veterinary industry:

I honestly can’t pick a favourite part of working in this industry – I love it all! I am interested in the medicine and surgery side of things. I highly enjoy interacting with our clients and their pets and I love that every day holds something different for me to learn about.

Pets:

My current pets are Bob the crazy kelpie, Luna (Tic) the cat and Sox, our beautiful old horse.

I completed a Bachelor of Science majoring in Zoology at James Cook University in Townsville in 2014. At the beginning of 2015 I began studying a Bachelor of Veterinary Technology at the University of Queensland in Gatton.

Dreams/goals:

I am fortunate enough to have known from a young age what I wanted to do with myself and that has always been to become a vet. My main huge goal is to become a vet and then hopefully either return to Stanthorpe or live in a similar rural area to practice.
