Level 3 Veterinary Nurse Apprenticeship 2022

School: Birkenhead High School

Job title: Registered Veterinary Nurse

”My ambition has always been to work with animals and I’m proud that I’m now a fully qualified veterinary nurse.

“I started my training as a Veterinary Care Assistant straight from school. This gave me a great insight into the industry and prepared me for my Veterinary Nurse Apprenticeship. During this course I attended college one day a week and spent the rest of the week working for Vets4Pets.

“I chose this pathway because I enjoy the caring aspect while also being involved in the medical side and assisting during surgery. I’m particularly interested in anaesthesia and phlebotomy, and I may specialise in the future.

“I now work for Sanderson Vets on the Wirral, which is a small animal and referrals practice, so I’m constantly gaining more experience.

“I thoroughly enjoyed studying at Reaseheath. The college has a brilliant Veterinary Nursing department and my courses enabled me to learn theory alongside practical experience. The teaching team were really supportive and it felt amazing when I passed my final OSCE exams!”
