Course content

The course
The programme is typically delivered on a blended-learning part-time basis, studied over three academic years, with students completing the taught modules within the first two years and completing the Masters Research Project within an individually negotiated timescale over one to two years. The programme is designed to be flexible; applicants may not wish to enrol for an MSc but to study some of the modules as part of a Continuing Professional Development Programme. One or more triads of modules will be delivered over a year to make up a post-graduate certificate (PgC) in a particular topic area. Individual modules could be studied for CPD, six modules studied for a PgD or six taught modules plus the research project for the MSc.

How will it benefit me?
Veterinary nursing is now a recognised profession with registration and responsibilities. One is Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Several hundred qualified veterinary nurses have trained through the degree route and more have studied other animalrelated degrees. There are also an increasing number of RVNs who have completed the Dip AVN. Although there is a wide range of CPD courses and events provided around the country, this is an opportunity to develop advanced knowledge and skills in areas of veterinary nursing which are not covered in depth in most undergraduate syllabuses, and achieve a postgraduate award.

Learning new skills is important in a profession, whether it is to develop confidence and skills in general practice or to be part of a team in a specialist or referral practice. The MSc modules have been chosen to enhance skills in developing and expanding fields of veterinary practice, and to complement and build on the more generic skills found in the undergraduate degrees and Dip AVN.

A clinical MSc in Veterinary Nursing would also develop the CV of those with an interest in teaching. We are being encouraged to nurse from an 'evidence base'. To establish an evidence base in veterinary nursing people must be willing and able to determine evidence and to publish it. The research project element of the MSc aims to develop and support those with an interest in this field.
