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 New Zealand Certificate in Animal Care is a great starting point for distance learning students.
Our on-campus programmes include Certificate level study in Animal Care and Animal Technology. Students can focus on companion animals, rural animals or veterinary nursing. The New Zealand Certificate in Animal Technology (Veterinary Nursing Assistant strand) is a pre-requisite course which can lead onto the National Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. Graduates of these diploma programmes will have the skills and experience necessary for employment in a range of clinical, field and industry roles.
