Good morning, and thanks for your question concerning your daughter's requirements for working as an equine Veterinary Nurse. My apologies for the delay with someone getting back to you. I just logged in and saw your post. My name is***** and I have been a large animal Veterinarian for 19 years. I am happy to assist you with your question. Are you still needing some help?

Hi Dan, yes please I've been doing my own research online but I get absolutely lost with it all, the colleges I've spoken to have been a bit hopeless too. Many thanks

By the way Dan I'm in the UK, are you?
Expert:  Daniel Cochren replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for getting back to me. I am in the U.S., and unfortunately, am not familiar with the processes that are necessary to work as a Veterinary Nurse in the U.K. In the states, there are schools/programs specifically designed for training in this field, where, upon completion one received licensing as a CVT, or Certified Veterinary Technician. One can also obtain this by working at a Veterinary facility for approximately six years, then taking an exam for licensure.

As I' am not familiar with the procedures in the U.K., I'll have to opt out and hope that another Vet can help you find your answer.

Sorry I couldn't help!

-Dan.

Would a U.K. Veterinarian be able to help you, or perhaps visiting an equine hospital and talking with the staff? Just a thought.

-Dan.

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
