Veterinary Nurse Apprenticeship Standard Level 3

Veterinary nursing is the supportive care of animals receiving treatment within a veterinary practice setting. A Veterinary Nurse works as a member of the veterinary team, providing expert nursing care for sick animals. Veterinary nurses also play a significant role in educating owners on maintaining the health of their pets. They carry out technical work and are skilled in undertaking a range of diagnostic tests, medical treatments and minor surgical procedures, under veterinary direction. Veterinary Nurses are registered professionals and work within the standards and scope of practice defined by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).

This Apprenticeship Standard will develop the key knowledge, skills & behaviours you will need to succeed in the sector, supported by industry specialist teaching staff. This course is delivered from our Easton campus, and is suitable for new and current employees who are employed in an approved training veterinary practice.

On successful completion of this course, employers will have an independent skilled Veterinary Nurse who is both a practical and financial asset to the team.

We deliver one course pathway for this Apprenticeship; Small Animal.
This apprenticeship is delivered at our Esaton Campus.
