Daniel Gawn

Daniel Paton Level 2 Animal Nursing Assistant

Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing I am in my second year studying the Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary nursing at CAFRE. After completing the Level 2 Certificate for Animal Nursing Assistants at CAFRE, I progressed onto the Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. I  knew I wanted to work with animals so focused my efforts on pursuing a career in Veterinary Nursing.

I worked in retail, and spent much of my free time volunteering at Assisi Animal Sanctuary before gaining a position at Cedarmount Veterinary Practice in Bangor. I initially applied for a kennel assistant position before starting on the Level 2 course to gain relevant experience. I have worked for 4 and half years and I am really pleased how I am progressing on the Level 3 Veterinary nursing course. The work is difficult but because I enjoy the practical work it keeps me motivated with my college work.
