Veterinary Nurse
Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing


Growing up with having pet rabbits, a bird, a cat and dog, I had no idea what to do for a living. Even after attending numerous university open days and researching online, I still didn’t know what to do. After achieving my ATAR for university, I discovered veterinary nursing through the certificate IV course with TAFE and found I really enjoyed it. From x-rays, surgeries, nursing patients and meeting people and their pets, there’s many areas I enjoy thoroughly. Although I have finished my certificate IV in veterinary nursing, I’m still learning more every day and find there’s a great sense of purpose and service that comes with the role in helping people care for their pets. I plan to continue in this career that I love.
