Do you see yourself working alongside a veterinarian, providing care and compassion to both animals and owners? This online course introduces you to the fascinating world of vet nursing, where you can turn your compassion for animals into a rewarding career. 

"I have been wanting to enter the field of animal study, not sure on where to start or what to do I enrolled in this course just to give me an inside on what life would be like if I were to work with animals. I absolutely love how easy it is to go through slides to find information, as well as how great it is that you can redo tests as many times as needed. There is no pressure, and I love being able to work on my own time.
" - Ashlee Wright
