About the role

Student Veterinary Nurses usually start as Veterinary Care Assistants before enrolling in a college. As a full-time member of your practice team, you’ll assist with essential nursing duties and care, all while being supported by the practice staff and your dedicated Clinical Coach.

As part of your training, you’ll also be expected to attend an accredited college to learn essential and advanced veterinary nursing theory. This is taught over the course of three years for a level 3 diploma, or four years for a degree at the Royal Veterinary College, after which you’ll graduate as a Registered Veterinary Nurse.
