Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month
Kylie Soar BSc DipAVN RVN
26 May 2015
BSc DipAVN RVN
Ward Nurse Co-ordinator
Continuing with our celebration of Willows outstanding veterinary nurses throughout May, our next feature highlights the role of Kylie Soar, ward nurse co-ordinator. Kylie has been part of the team here at Willows for 6 years.
Kylie worked as a student veterinary nurse at a local practice in Solihull before qualifying as a registered veterinary nurse and joining the Willows team in 2009. Kylie has a passion for animal welfare and continually strives to expand her knowledge. After studying very hard Kylie gained her advanced diploma in veterinary nursing in 2013 and with continued hard work and dedication she obtained a BSc degree in veterinary nursing in July 2014.
In 2014 Kylie was rewarded with the ward nurse co-ordinator role at Willows and completed the ILM level 2 certificate in leadership and team skills. With a passion to pass on her skills and high standards of nursing care Kylie became a clinical coach to two student veterinary nurses. Most recently Kylie has written a paper that was published in May 2015 in the Veterinary Nurse Journal on 'Neuromuscular blocking agents, what a nurse needs to know'.
The ward areas of Willows focus on the recovery and treatment of patients within our care. Having dedicated ward nurses ensures that patients are cared for to the highest possible standard 100 percent of the time.
Kylie says “I enjoy looking after the patients in my care as if they were my own, along with the rest of the dedicated nursing and support staff team.”
