About the course

Are you a nurse with an interest in surgery? Then chances are you have heard about "Schedule III" - but what exactly is it and what does it let you do? What does this mean to you - the veterinary nurse?

This heavily practical course will cover a number of procedures that can be carried out by the registered veterinary nurse. It is an excellent foundation for nurses who want to expand their surgical techniques and it also highlights the legal aspects on which minor surgeries are allowed to be performed - making you an invaluable part of any veterinary surgical team.

We will consider the nursing aspects of dealing with surgeries such as effective preparation of patients (such as clipping and scrubbing) and preparation of the team and surgical environment.

Delegates will take part in a suturing workshop where you will perform practical hands on suturing, under the course tutor's supervision.

The course is designed to be very integrated teaching, during which delegates are encouraged to take an active part in the day's sessions.

Note: live animals and cadavers are NOT used on this course
