New top up degree launched for Registered Veterinary Nurses

The new programme aims to give learners the skills, experience and knowledge needed to become a critically thinking individual who can enhance the standing of the veterinary nursing profession

The College of Animal Welfare now offers the opportunity for Registered Veterinary Nurses to top up their veterinary nursing qualification to a BSc Honours Veterinary Nursing degree, in partnership with Middlesex University.

Delivered predominantly via distance learning, the new programme aims to give learners the skills, experience and knowledge needed to become a critically thinking individual who can enhance the standing of the veterinary nursing profession.

Throughout the programme, learners will develop skills in critical evaluation, academic writing and complex decision-making. Veterinary Nurses will be able to tailor the degree to their professional interests by choosing from a range of elective modules including Nursing Exotics and Wildlife, Equine Nursing and Emergency and Critical Care. In addition, completion of the pharmacology module culminates in eligibility for Companion Animal Suitable Qualified Person status (C-SQP).

Dr Catherine Hemingway MRCVS, BSc VN Top Up Programme Leader at The College of Animal Welfare, said: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Middlesex University to deliver this programme, which is designed to provide learners with a variety of transferable skills which will enhance their veterinary career and continue their professional development.”

Applications to study the BSc Honours Veterinary Nursing Top Up Degree are open to start in September 2020 or January 2021. For more information about the programme visit CAW’s website or contact the college on 01480 422060.
