A Little About Us

Vet Nurse Plus is a private training establishment that has one focus – training veterinary nurses. We aim to provide outstanding veterinary nurse graduates to the veterinary industry, who can hit the ground running upon employment. First launched in 2005, our programme is highly practical and graduate outcome-based, incorporating feedback and input from the industry that employs our students. This in turn leads to high demand for our graduates and excellent levels of employment. Well over 95% of our graduates are hired within six months of graduation.

Vet Nurse Plus has 2 Auckland locations where a 2-year full-time programme is delivered, the Level 6 New Zealand Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. The programme is NZQA accredited and approved, and Vet Nurse Plus is a NZQA Category 1 provider (highly confident in educational performance / highly confident in capability in self-assessment).

Vet Nurse Plus is boutique and maintains small class sizes. Usually no more than 30 students per class. This allows the opportunity to meet individual student needs and ensures learners don’t get lost in the crowd. Tutors are experienced, qualified veterinarians and veterinary nurses, that are passionate about the veterinary industry and teaching. Learners receive one-to-one support from tutors, and a high level of practical experience throughout the course. Alongside this, students attend field trips for interactive learning, and hear from various guest speakers who are experts in their field. Students are also working hands on in veterinary clinics from the start – unbeatable industry exposure that leads to excellent employment rates for graduates.
