Nurse training

In order to qualify, nurses undergo a two-year period of vocational training which is assessed at work and through examination by the RCVS. Students work in practice throughout their training, spending one day each week during term time at a training college. In practice, they complete a portfolio and are constantly assessed to ensure that they are reaching the required standards and that they learn all that is set out in the syllabus.

The other way of attaining the qualification is by completion of a degree in veterinary nursing.  This is run by a number of colleges. Students will both study full time for periods and then complete placements in practice, again completing a portfolio.

The veterinary nursing qualification is currently under review.
