Why study Veterinary Nursing at Hartpury University Centre?

At Hartpury, we take great pride in our specialised provision for veterinary nursing.

We have a reputation for producing high quality, professional veterinary nurses who benefit from our extensive on-site facilities, opportunities to get hands on with a wide range of small animals and horses and excellent work placement opportunities.

Many of our students go on to gain employment in the practice where they complete their work placement year.

You’ll also benefit from Hartpury’s outstanding facilities, including a veterinary nursing clinical skills area, Equine Therapy Centre, small animal house, hydrotherapy treadmill and pool and commercial farm.

The teaching team are all Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Registered Veterinary Nurses with industry experience and the programme is fully accredited by the regulatory body.

When our students graduate, they are considered qualified Veterinary Nurses. That means they are eligible to join the Register of Veterinary Nurses held by the RCVS, which shows employers and the clients they serve – both human and animal – that they are keeping their skills up-to-date and accounting for their professional conduct.

Hartpury offers Foundation degrees in both Veterinary Nursing and Equine Veterinary Nursing as well as an Honours degree in Veterinary Nursing, all of which incorporate a sandwich year working in a veterinary practice. A new Diploma in Professional Studies Veterinary Nursing will also run for the first time in September 2017. The unique nature of this two-year blended learning programme allows people already working full-time in an RCVS-approved veterinary nurse training practice to study to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse alongside their work in the practice, focusing on either small animal or equine veterinary nursing.
