Nikola started working at Gatehouse in 2017 as the dedicated night nurse. She has since moved onto days and works as the deputy head nurse. Since qualifying in 1998 she has worked at many different practices around the country and loves sharing her knowledge with the team. She has a special interest in emergency and critical care and passed her ECC certificate in 2021. It was one of the hardest things she has ever done but was worth every minute. She keeps her skills fresh and updated by locuming for VetsNow in her spare time.
Nikola loves the variety of cases we see here and feels she is constantly learning. Her plan is to study for a certificate in schedule 3 procedures which will allow her to perform minor surgery. Watch this space! She thrives in a busy work environment and loves the team dynamics. Knowing that she is working with such a great team that help and support each other is the best part of her working day.
When not working Nikola loves hanging out with her family, dogs and cats. She is happiest with the radio on, a nice cuppa and her knitting.
