More about Matthew
“The Veterinary Nursing course will teach you everything you need to know to be a Vet Nurse. It involves a mixture of theory and practical based learning and often has a practical session to go with the theory that is taught.
“The practical element of the course is the part I enjoy the most. As being a Vet Nurse is mostly practical, getting hands on experience is good fun and helps build on your knowledge.
“Placements are compulsory on the Veterinary Nursing course as you are required to complete 60 weeks in a veterinary practice to be able to register with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. The placements seem daunting at first, but once you are there and settled in they are great. They allow you to put everything you have learnt into practice and you can see a real difference from when you first start to when you leave.
“Being a student here is great because you get the best of both worlds. You can live in a small village where everyone is friendly and faces are familiar but if you want to do something a bit different Nottingham city centre is just a short bus ride or drive away.”
