Trainee Nurses & Animal Attendants

Trainee Nurses and Animal Attendants play an integral role in caring for patients under the supervision of our excellent nursing team.

Trainee nurses are enthusiastic team members who have, or are on their way, to becoming qualified nurses, and are working towards qualifying for a nursing position at SASH through our training programs.

There are four levels of trainee nurse depending on your qualification, training, skills and experience and you are given responsibility accordingly.

The trainee nurses are there to make pet as comfortable as possible during their stay at SASH.

At SASH we have a dedicated Trainee Nurse Team Leader and Nurse Education team to support all Trainee Nurses develop their skills. 

This program is suitable for those looking to apply their academic knowledge.

There's nothing like SASH

SASH is a vet-led organisation, operated by all of its founding veterinarian partners. Each of SASH’s founding partners are practising veterinarians, and are respected members of the veterinary community.

With the owners of the hospitals walking the corridors in scrubs, each and everyday, they have a deep and thorough understanding of what makes a good hospital, how to provide gold standard patient care, and how pet owners feel. These unique insights help to guide decisions are that in the best interest of their patients and their team.

Having been veterinarians for decades, SASH management understands and appreciate the importance of Trainee Nurses and Animal Attendants.
