Prior knowledge

Knowledge equivalent to 80 credits within Veterinary Nursing.


The course intends to make the student familiar with the practical parts that are included in the work of a veterinary nurse in an animal hospital/clinic.

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- perform elements of a hygienic nature that will prevent infection and disease transmission,
- use appropriate techniques at the medication, handling and feeding of animals,
- assist at treatments,
- apply appropriate techniques in anaesthesia and operating theatre routines,
- use current technology within image diagnostics,
- use appropriate sampling techniques and perform simple laboratory analyses,
- use established systems for documentation and medical records keeping.


Working methods, environments and medical issues are highlighted from a nursing perspective. This takes place via practical skills training at animal hospitals and clinics and through a prescribed individual presentation. The practical elements make it possible for the student to apply their theoretical knowledge in veterinary nursing and veterinary medicine. The internship furthermore gives possibilities for personal development of the communicative and informative skills of the student. The individual presentation gives the student the opportunity to theorize and deepen their understanding of the practical elements of the course and this is presented orally and in written form.

Formats and requirements for examination

Approved individual presentation, compulsory parts and approved participation in compulsory clinical teaching.
  • If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
  • If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
  • If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
  • For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.

Other information

  • The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.

Additional information

Discontinued practice
A student may receive a fail grade and be stopped from participating in the practical training with living animals if there is a tangible risk that the student, through severe incompetence, could injure animals, other persons, themselves, or valuable property if they continued to participate in the practical training. An individual action plan will be prescribed for the student and served to them in writing. The plan will be established by the department responsible for the course after consultation with a study counselor and the student concerned. This plan, which is decided by the programme director of studies, should indicate which deficiencies in knowledge and skills the student has, which kind of support the student can receive from the department, and when a control can take place that the deficiencies have been resolved. The plan will also specify how this control will be carried out. Each student has the right to a maximum of two control occasions, but no more than one per year. The student may not take part in practical training with living animals until the programme director of studies has controlled and confirmed that the student has the knowledge and skills that are required.
