WHY YOU SHOULD STUDY WITH US
Get help when you need it. We provide unparalleled student support six days a week. Our Nurse Educators are available by online live chat, email, phone and in our very active ACVN Student Facebook Group where you can connect with fellow course participants and often see Nurse Educators help out after hours!
All courses are delivered by distance education, so you can fit them around your busy schedule with no need to attend campus. No due dates to stress you out, study when it suits you. Can’t finish the course in the enrolment timeframe? That’s ok too! It’s easy to extend your course as needed but be aware this attracts a fee.
All our students receive printed learners guides at no extra charge. Our notes are quite comprehensive and would cost a fortune to print out at home.
Supporting your included printed learner’s guides is our online Learning Centre. Here you upload your assignments, saving on postage, and view videos and presentations to assist your learning.
Our courses are designed to deliver everything you need to know to turbo-charge your veterinary nursing career. We believe in balancing theoretical knowledge with real-world practical skills so that everything you study is completely and immediately relevant to your job as a Veterinary Nurse. All the information you learn can be directly applied in practice. You’ll also discover the critical thinking skills vital to becoming as a highly competent nurse.
At The Australian College of Veterinary Nursing, all our qualifications are industry and nationally recognised. We train in conjunction with the Queensland Agricultural Training College – a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). In fact, our courses exceed the standards set in the Animal Care & Management training package. That means you graduate with a highly regarded qualification accepted anywhere in Australia and, for Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing graduates, even overseas!
Every one of our courses has been developed and written by experienced staff at the Australian College of Veterinary Nursing. They’re also peer reviewed through a rigorous process to ensure you are learning what industry wants, to a very high standard. Our graduates are sought after employees.
Our students are raving about our courses!
I have always had a passion for animals and after working alongside an equine vet, I realised I wanted to study veterinary nursing. The Nurse Educators at ACVN offer so much support and they go out their way to help you even in their time off. I also love the fact that I can study via distance learning and still work, gaining as much experience as possible.
The Emergency Nursing subject was my favourite. I love the thrill I get when an emergency arrives! Now that I have studied the subject I feel our team works so much better together. I have also really enjoyed learning about the anatomy and physiology of the animals body. It is fascinating how the body works.
I am currently the head nurse in a busy 3 Vet practice. My studies with ACVN have helped me to grow and improve our clinic by implementing new protocols that are beneficial to the practice.
