Hi everyone,
So ive written my first ever personal statement draft for veterinary nursing. I havent undertaken my placement for work experience yet so i cannot add anything with regards to what i have learnt until ive done the work experience. Please let me know if there is anything i could change, add or remove, and let me know what is good and bad about it. Honesty will not offend me! Haha, thanks

Veterinary nurses have always been role models of mine. Their ability to think on the spot, assist veterinarian surgeons in complex manners, and deal with emotional or grieving pet owners are all qualities that have always stood out to me. They are qualities that i believe i do posses, however not in depth. This course would enable me to build on these strengths and develop new ones i never knew i could.

While the role is certainly challenging, i believe it brings about many rewards- some of which are invaluable. My passion for animals and their wellbeing and my wish to work with them in the future has fuelled me to choose this exciting degree.

My clearest memory, from when i was around 4 years old, was when my elderly cat was taken to the vet to be "put to sleep". Little did i know about euthanasia, i still remember the veterinary nurse who comforted me when i began to cry, allowing me to pet my cat Lesley for the last time. The nurse explained to me how my cat was 'poorly' and that he wanted to go up to "cat heaven". I believe that, to some extent, this personal experience had led me to aspire to become a veterinary nurse, realising that the role requires helping not just only animals, but owners who were confused and young like me.

If i were to qualify as a veterinary nurse, it would be a passion of mine to face a new challenge every day, uncertain of what new situation may come through the doors. From this i gain a thrill, a drive to help animals and their owners, an increasing motivation to make a difference.

Thanks for reading!!
