The programme of study of the Veterinary Nursing Course is in accordance with the Bologna Process, developed in a three-year Diploma and designed to train veterinary nurses to the highest standards to work professionally as part of a veterinary team and also within allied sectors.

This course provides extensive coverage of all aspects of veterinary nursing and is ideal for those who wish to pursue a career involving veterinary practice management. This is why the curricular structure holds a strong component of practical studies on nursing care for sick animals, as well as technical work and skills in different subjects as diagnostic tests, medical treatments and minor surgical procedures, under veterinary direction.
