Level 4 modules provide an introduction into Academic Studies as well as Applied Anatomy and Physiology, Introductory Animal Welfare, Breeding and Nutrition, Operation of a Veterinary Practice, Introductory Veterinary Nursing Care and Principles and Practice of Diagnostics. Level 5 modules deepen and consolidate veterinary nursing knowledge and cover Advanced Nursing Care, Applied Anaesthesia and Applied Surgical Nursing.
