La Trobe University
The Bachelor of Veterinary Nursing is the first para-professional veterinary nursing qualification of this level available in Australia.
It is designed to produce highly skilled clinicians with exceptional levels of practical skill, knowledge and in-depth understanding gained through a stimulating exploration of the academic underpinnings of the field.
A semester-long industry placement in second year provides the opportunity to apply the theory and practices learned on campus in a range of areas of interest. This placement, along with ongoing comprehensive practical clinical experience will ensure that graduates are ‘Future ready’ and highly employable.
In third year, students can opt to undertake paid work in veterinary practices (outside of classes). Throughout their course, students undertake WIL placements in various industry settings including hospitals, animal shelters and farms. Students are fully supervised by experienced veterinary team members while at external placements.
This course is delivered in partnership with Melbourne Polytechnic at Epping. For more information please visit the Melbourne Polytechnic website.
