So im thinking of going into a veterinary nursing degree next year and ive heard throughout the years you are studying you can choose sections based on your interests. However i dont understand entirely what this means. Does this mean a certain type of animal such as exotic, pet, equine etc or does it mean a certain sort of area in which you want to work such as practice or zoo etc. Im sorry if this doesnt make sense but could someone please explain

I’m not fully versed on vet nursing however I am hoping to start studying vet med in September and assume the structure is similar in terms of how the course works!
So as a vet you all have to learn basics of smallies, equine, farm etc to qualify and for placements you have to do certain compulsory placements (certain amount of weeks on smallies, equine etc). However you also get to pick some of your placements so for me, I will choose to spend much of my placements on equine because that’s what I want to specialise in on top of the compulsory equine placements.
So let’s say you wanted to specialise in exotics, the placements you get to pick it’s likely you will choose more exotics based placements instead of doing equine like I hope to... does that make sense?

Hey Just about to graduate from my nursing BSc. It is simply a professional interest. In my degree the exotics module was mostly husbandry based (so not necessarily that helpful in the practice environment), animal behaviour was not specific to small animals e.g. dogs and cats as we had an additional module focusing on that in our 4th year. Equine would be useful if you are going to be working in mixed practice hope this helps!
