Skill-developing ● Thought-leading ● Standard-setting
We offer unbeatable training and experience to veterinary nurses. You will learn from inspiring and enthusiastic experts, and benefit from a hands-on learning environment where you will master all the essential nursing skills and techniques, and have opportunities to further your development.
The Veterinary Nursing undergraduate programmes provide you with opportunities to develop a range of practical, personal and supervisory skills whilst gaining the underpinning academic knowledge required to work in veterinary practice. Each successive year incorporates new information with increasing complexity whilst building upon, and referencing back to, existing knowledge and skills. This ‘spiral’ approach encourages logical knowledge acquisition and critical understanding of simple to more complex theories and concepts, as well as gradual development of problem solving abilities.
As part of the BSc the students undertake the FdSc degree and are awarded this to enable them to enter the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and in the EU by the Accreditation Committee for Veterinary Nursing Education (ACOVENE). These bodies set the standard for the delivery of veterinary nursing education in the United Kingdom and the European Union.
