Open doors with Cert IV

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LEARNING - Janita Singh

IF YOU love car­ing for an­i­mals, TAFE’s Cer­tifi­cate IV in Ve­teri­nary Nurs­ing can put your nur­tur­ing na­ture to good use.

It qual­i­fies stu­dents to be a ve­teri­nary nurse in any pri­vate prac­tice.

There is also po­ten­tial to tran­si­tion into ed­u­ca­tional roles and work for drug com­pa­nies. Some grad­u­ates be­come prac­tice man­agers or en­ter the world of emer­gency medicine and surgery.

The on­line course is very flex­i­ble (two years to com- plete) but stu­dents do need to be work­ing as a vet nurse in a prac­tice for at least two days a week (or 16 hours per week) to be el­i­gi­ble.

Sev­eral dif­fer­ent di­ploma cour­ses are on of­fer once you gain some nurs­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and choose an area to spe­cialise in.

Don’t for­get that ve­teri­nary nurs­ing is not all about cute an­i­mals – nurses have to deal with ev­ery­thing from clean­ing to emo­tion­ally drain­ing jobs like deal­ing with eu­thana­sia. Details: Go to
