If you love animals and have a passion to help, TMCC’s Veterinary Nursing Program may be for you.
A veterinary technician or nurse is a key member of the veterinary team, responsible for skills in areas such as animal nursing care, surgical assisting, dental cleaning, dental and general radiographs, diagnostic testing, anesthetic induction and monitoring, and client education.
Applicants admitted to the Veterinary Nursing Program will pursue an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Veterinary Technology. The degree is necessary to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE) to pursue licensing. The TMCC Veterinary Nursing Program can be completed in two years, and requires four semesters.
