Diploma of Veterinary Nursing

COMING SOON IN 2020….

A GREAT NEW DIPLOMA PROGRAM IS COMING SOON…

Sorry, we’re not taking enrolments into this course at the moment. But we have a brand new program coming in 2020.

There is a new Diploma of Veterinary Nursing qualification being released sometime soon (but soon is yet to be defined – we’re waiting for the new qualification to be approved at the top level). This new qualification has significant changes from the current Diploma course and the clinical units are not equivalent. This makes the transition from the old into the new Diploma problematic. We don’t want students to be undertaking any work that may not count towards the new course when released, so we’ve made the hard decision to not take enrolments right now.

But, the good news is, the new program is more flexible in subject choice and assessment.

In the new Diploma of Veterinary Nursing you will cover a range of clinical nursing subjects and learn about leveraging your team to deliver excellence.

To be eligible to enrol in the Diploma of Veterinary Nursing (Emergency & Critical Care), you must:

  • Have successfully completed ACM40412 Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.
  • Students holding older qualifications or overseas qualifications will need to RPL to upgrade their qualification first. Click here to learn more.
  • Be employed in a veterinary practice that sees a variety of emergency cases and has critical care facilities and equipment, for a minimum of 15 hrs a week on average.
  • OR: If you hold a casual position at an emergency clinic, fulfil the 15hrs a week at a general practice in addition to casual hours at the emergency clinic.
  • Have suitable post qualification experience with emergency cases

In General Practice?

If you work in a smaller general practice that sees a larger proportion of emergency cases than normal clinics and has the right equipment, we may still accept your application. However, it’s likely you’ll need to undertake several work placements within an emergency centre to complete some sections of the course.

Please note:
These work placements must be arranged prior to your officially enrolling on the course. You can still apply and discuss your situation with us before arranging anything.

Students falling under this entry requirement are only accepted on a case-by-case basis. Our Nurse Educators reserve the right to make the final decision as to whether we think you’ll have access to the right caseload to successfully complete the course.
