Tatiana Raissis, BSc Veterinary Nursing

As a 3rd year Vet Nursing Student, I was able to spend 3 months at the Beaumont Sainsbury Animal Hospital in which the staff worked tirelessly to ensure I was on target with my Nurse Practice Log, and I understood the evidence behind my actions.

I worked in many different areas of the hospital including theatre, anaesthesia, nursing clinics, in patient/surgical wards and dispensary. I would also highly recommend spending time at the Beaumont for its incredible exotics department.

Their highly skilled team were more than willing to answer every question I could think of (and there were many) about species ranging from reptiles and birds to small mammals. I can now say I have helped ultrasound a snake and train a conure!

I will never forget my time at the Beaumont and all that it taught me!
