If you love animals and want a career in animal care, production or welfare, our courses in Veterinary Nursing and Animal Care give you the skills and knowledge to gain employment in a variety of roles.
With five vets on hand and a fully equipped clinic, studying Animal Care and Veterinary Nursing on-campus at SIT in Invercargill offers plenty of hands-on practice and supporting expertise. Alternatively, the SIT2LRN Certificate in Basic Animal Care Science is a great starting point for distance learning students.
Our on-campus programmes include the National Diploma in Veterinary Nursing and the Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Rural Animal Technician) which can be undertaken as a conjoint programme. Graduates of these diploma programmes will have the skills and experience necessary for employment in a range of clinical, field and industry roles.
