About Veterinary Nursing
Masters degrees in Veterinary Nursing train postgraduates in the advanced practical skills needed to care for a range of sick and injured animals.
Typically aimed at qualified veterinary nurses, these courses aim to build on and improve the existing knowledge of nursing techniques and approaches for ill animals. As such, you’ll usually need an undergraduate degree in a veterinary science to satisfy the entry requirements. Programmes usually award a few different kinds of degree, such as an MSc, a PGDip and a PGCert.
A postgraduate qualification in Veterinary Nursing covers a host of subjects and skills that may not have been examined in detail at undergraduate level. For a qualified veterinary nurse, one of these courses could be an ideal opportunity to undergo continuing professional development (CPD).
Some of the topics you might study include statistical methods, research and evidence-based nursing, animal ethics and client support techniques.
A Masters in Veterinary Nursing could boost your long-term career prospects, giving you extra advanced knowledge and skills to draw upon in your veterinary practice.
