Vet nurses perform exceptionally well in Equine diploma
The Level 3 Equine Pathway Diploma replaced the NVQ in August 2010 and opens up additional employment opportunities for vet nurses.
The diploma allows students to demonstrate their skills in realistic settings and provide equine handling experience.
Deidre Carson, partner at Rossdales in Newmarket said:
“We would prefer to employ vet nurses who have taken the Equine Pathway. The qualification provides a thorough grounding in the specifics of equine nursing and gives VNs the necessary understanding and confidence to handle horses effectively.”
Vet nurses had a passrate of 90% while taking Level 3 Equine Pathway Diploma, almost double the passrate of those taking Small Animal course at the same time.
