Veterinary nurses play a vital role within the veterinary industry in caring for sick, injured and hospitalised animals, and contributing to the ongoing care of animals. This includes undertaking minor surgeries and procedures, and delivering medical treatments and tests. Veterinary nurses also take on the responsibilities of customer care within a surgery, clinic or hospital setting, and therefore must develop client-facing skills alongside knowledge of animal care.
The BSc Veterinary Nursing course is designed to produce veterinary nurses who have the knowledge and skills to make a significant contribution to animal health and welfare. You will be exposed to practical training within the first three foundation years of the programme, where you have the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills within a real-life environment. At the end of this period (providing you have met the assessment requirements), you will achieve your professional veterinary nursing qualification.
During your final year, you will undertake a research project on an area of clinical interest and choose from a range of innovative modules taught by RVC nurse educators and world-renowned clinicians from the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals. This is a challenging degree course that delivers a broad programme of learning, and offers a fascinating introduction to veterinary nursing.
Veterinary Nursing courses are delivered primarily at our Hawkshead Campus.
Entry Requirement: At least five GCSEs required at Grade C or above
