Student profile

Georgina started the Diploma in Veterinary Nursing course, having completed an Extended Diploma in Animal Management and worked as a pet care advisor within a veterinary practice. She has always been a proactive student, who has keenly partaken in any activity. Georgina has always demonstrated the professional attitudes and behaviour necessary for the profession. For example, undertaking further independent study. This, together with her clear passion for the profession, has resulted in her gaining confidence and competence throughout the course, and has enabled her to develop into somebody who will be a credit to the RCVS Register of Veterinary Nurses.

A word from Georgina...

“Prior to the course, I gathered a lot of experience in different animal working environments including stables, kennels and catteries, veterinary practices and pet shops. Through undertaking the Diploma in Veterinary Nursing, I feel I have progressed in my understanding of working with animals and the appropriate methods of nursing, including correct animal care. Variety is what I most enjoy about my career; every day is different when working in practice. Studying with the Central College of Animal Studies and being taught by enthusiastic tutors has enabled me to gain in-depth knowledge and provided me with the practical experience necessary to become a veterinary nurse. My aspirations following completion of this course are to become a dedicated veterinary nurse and potentially further my career into working in a referral centre focussing on kennel nursing in an intensive care unit.”
