Hello all,


My name's Freyer and I'm just looking to see if anyone else out there has started this course recently?


I'm currently doing work experience at a local vets after finishing university in a different subject and was looking to see if anyone out there would give some advice on veterinary nursing placements, have a chat about the course and so on?


Look forward to hearing from you all!!

Hi hope you are ok.

I've nearly finished this course, have only the final test to do.

I am not in any placements.  How are you finding your work experience?

Hi I have just enrolled on this course and I am awaiting my course materials. Im currently a learning support officer looking for a career change!
Ive done lots of research and it seems such a hard career to get into (veterinary nurse)!

Hi Nicola,

I've just got to do the final test then I have finished the course. 

I won't lie I've found some bits hard going in when having to remember some terms etc, but over all its been enjoyable and learnt a lot. 

Are the doing the online or paper based version?  I did the online version so have managed to see all the course in one go.

I didn't get all the books that they recommended to read.  Go on amazon or ebay to see if there is any books you like the look of.

I've chosen paper based so I only see the assignments as I go. How long has it taken you?
Are you hoping to find work in the veterinary field?
I haven't seen any book recommendations yet, I'm guessing these will come further down the line, but I will definitely check out eBay and Amazon thanks

Hi Nicola,
How's things going?
I've taken quite a while doing the course as health issues kept stopping me.
If you sign in on the log in page then go to the Lounge and click on the book icon then you should be able to find reading list.
Has your first assignment arrived yet?
