Course Summary:
This course is an excellent opportunity for students wishing to qualify as a RCVS Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) whilst studying a Level 6 higher education qualification. Your studies will combine academic study and occupational competence and the course is recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).

Level 6 modules include a Dissertation (double module), Applied Pharmacy and Medicines, Companion Animal Behaviour and Therapy and a range of optional modules relating to Emergency Critical and Intensive Care Nursing, Welfare and Behaviour of Captive and Domesticated Animals, Wildlife Conservation and Applied Breeding and Nutrition.

Modules are assessed using a variety of methods (reports, essays, presentations, practicals etc.) thus allowing students to develop a range of skills related to the subject area and to build confidence in the subject and in themselves.
