“OSVS is the place to be if you want to feel accomplished after your shift. Eight years later, I work with cases I never thought I would be able to handle. I am still learning every day and am constantly impressed by the level of medicine and care given by the doctors and fellow nurses. Working at OSVS isn't just a job. It's tending to patients, but also learning a new skill every shift. The people at OSVS are more than a team; they’re a family. This small practice feel, combined with the unmatched benefits that are offered, is the reason I will be staying with the hard-working OSVS family for many years in the future."
