I am a full time employed veterinary nurse thanks to my ACVN studies. (Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing)

Rebecca Grasso / Bundaberg, Queensland

ACVN allows me to have a work/study/life balance as I can complete my course to the pace of my chaotic life.

Sam Petzer / Whale beach, Sydney

Because of my studies I started as a placement student in a clinic and as a result of this I was offered employment.

Emily Shearman / Brisbane

I love the fact that I can do these studies via distance learning and still work. That makes the studying easier because you can relate to real life scenarios.

Yvonne Funk / Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

The ACVN Nurse Educators are second to none. Where else could you ask a question on Facebook at 10pm at night and have a real Nurse Educator answer?

Jane Bracken / Mornington Peninsula, Victoria

I am currently employed as a veterinary nurse in a large purpose build veterinary hospital. Without my studies with ACVN I would be lost as to where I would want to be in my career.
