You'll learn the competencies you need to undertake practical patient care and theatre duties, and regular clinical skills labs will prepare you for practical examinations.
Once you've successfully completed the general or Honours degree, including the required clinical placement within practice, you'll be able to register as a Veterinary Nurse and begin to practice. Registration is awarded at the graduation ceremony by an RCVS representative.
