Course Details

CAO CODE : AL 731

The growth in scale, demands and sophistication of veterinary practices has created a significant market for the services of veterinary nurses. The veterinary nurse plays an essential role in the running of a modern veterinary practice, from assisting the veterinary surgeon, to maintenance of the clinic and patient care.

Their roles can be in an advisory capacity, such as advising clients about husbandry, kennel and stable management and responsible pet ownership. Veterinary Nurses are involved in the running of diagnostic tests within the clinic such as diagnostic imaging and blood testing. They may also be responsible for administering and dispensing medicines and stock control. Administrative duties may also be part of the veterinary nurse's responsibilities.

This established degree programme will give you the multi-disciplined skills to play a key role in both large and small animal veterinary practices. A critical component of each year of the course is a clinical placement in a veterinary practice.

You will be required to spend two residential weeks at Gurteen College, Ballingarry, Roscrea, Co Tipperary during both first and second year of the degree programme. The cost of this week must be paid by the student (details of fees available from AIT).
