Rosie was the animal mad person in her family, so she was absolutely delighted to be offered a job as a trainee veterinary nurse by a local practice when she left school. After the initial interview, she was informed that she was to return the next day and observe an operation to make sure that she would be able to cope with that side of things. She spent the whole night unable to sleep, terrified that she would faint or really not like what was going on. The patient that day was an elderly sheltie with a large testicular tumour. The vet explained that surgery was the only option for this little man. Rosie stood in the theatre that day and watched the surgery; it was so interesting that all of her previous thoughts of fainting, or worse, disappeared. Watching the patient’s relieved and happy owner collect him that night is something that has always stuck in Rosie’s memory and she knew then that she wanted to be a veterinary nurse.
