As a veterinary nurse you will provide support to sick and injured animals who are receiving treatment in a veterinary practice and provide expert nursing care. You will help to educate owners on maintaining the health of their pets and carry out a range of medical treatments under veterinary supervision. Knowing that you have helped nurse animals back to full health is one of the most rewarding careers.
If you are interested in an apprenticeship, you will need an employer in place first, please speak to our apprenticeship recruitment team on live chat who can talk to you about where to look for employer vacancies and how to apply.

Head Nurse at St Clements Veterinary Practice
After competing an animal management course at Cornwall College Newquay, Toni started work at Gover Valley Kennels. Toni then approached St Clement Veterinary Clinic to pursue a career as a veterinary nurse. Having secured the necessary training placement Toni completed the veterinary nursing course at Duchy College Rosewarne. Toni now uses her experience to train new students in her position as head nurse at St Clement.
“I am a registered veterinary nurse at St Clement Veterinary Clinic and work out of three practices. I really enjoyed the course at Duchy College Rosewarne as it was very hands-on rather than being stuck in a classroom and leaning from a book.”
