We have a number of resources for veterinary nursing students, which are summarised below. Please follow the links for more information.

Due to OSCEs being suspended as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, an alternative assessment method called a Patient-based Assessment has been developed. View information about the Patient-based Assessment.

Enrolling as a student veterinary nurse

In order to train as a veterinary nurse, you first need to have a place at a college on a course leading to an RCVS-accredited veterinary nursing qualification.

Once you have obtained a place at a college and been registered with the Awarding Organisation or University, you will need to enrol as a veterinary nurse student with us.
