From front-line emergency work to palliative support, at CVS there's something for everyone.

Our Veterinary Nurses are one of two key professional roles delivering medical care to animals, the other being veterinary surgeons. To be a veterinary nurse, you'll need to have successfully completed a course accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).

You'll be involved in the hands-on nursing care of a range of animals, providing both emergency and routine healthcare. You'll work alongside veterinary surgeons to promote animal health and welfare through responsible ownership and play a key role in the education of pet owners.

Types of veterinary nursing we offer

Depending on the practice and your own interests, you may be able to specialise in one of these areas:

General practice (first opinion) - first-line care of animals including vaccinating, neutering, worming and health checking.

Emergency and Critical Care - practices that typically operate overnight and at weekends seeing urgent and critical cases.

Referral practice - specialist practices that tend to see the more complex cases. Examples include orthopaedics, oncology and ophthalmology. In some cases, these may be species-specific, e.g. canine, equine or exotics.
