Alternative Courses

If you do not meet entry requirements, or if you are only interested in the clinical nursing components of the Diploma, we do have alternative non-accredited courses available in our Professional Veterinary Nursing series.


These courses cover the same clinical nursing subjects as their Diploma counterpart (and count as full credit towards them should you wish to enrol later), but have more flexible entry requirements.


You do not need to hold a ACM40412 Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing if you are experienced or overseas qualified nurse. You can enrol directly with ACVN.
