What I do on my work placement: I am currently on work placement for my second year at B&W Equine Practice. This involves carrying out the duties of an equine veterinary nurse, including caring for patients after surgery, trotting up horses for lameness examinations and carrying out on call duties. I think that my placement has greatly widened my understanding of how the veterinary practice functions.

Career ambitions: My ambitions for the future are to carry on working for such an established practice and to go on to become a head nurse.
