Veterinary Nurses have a key role within the multidisciplinary veterinary team in providing evidence-based nursing care for their patients.
If you think you would enjoy working with companion animals and their owners to improve their wellbeing and would thrive in an environment that is challenging, varied but immensely rewarding, this is the course for you.
This course is delivered by a supportive, small team of experts who will guide you with your studies to ensure that you achieve your professional and personal goals.
Teaching sessions will be delivered in our new clinical suite where you will apply theory to practice throughout your studies. The clinical suite has been equipped with a range of veterinary equipment and training manikins to provide you with a realistic learning experience.
In each year of the programme, you will develop your clinical skills in a veterinary training practice. You will be mentored in practice by a Clinical Coach during your 16-week placement blocks and supported by a Clinical Placement Support Tutor from the University Veterinary Nursing Team.
*Provisional accreditation is granted to new programmes that have made substantial progress towards meeting the RCVS accreditation standards. It should be noted that students undertaking a provisionally accredited qualification may be required to pass the RCVS pre-registration examination unless full accreditation is granted, and it is expected that this is explained in writing to all students attending the programme.’
