Veterinary Nursing

Greenmount offers two Veterinary Nursing courses designed to prepare students for a career in the veterinary nursing/animal care profession.  The training provides the knowledge required to complement the practical skills acquired through working in a veterinary practice.  It also helps student nurses to become valuable and highly motivated team members.  There are high volumes of applications for both courses and places are limited.
