4 April 2003
The pass lists for this year's diplomas in advance veterinary nursing (surgical) and advanced veterinary nursing (medical) are now available. The final practical exams for both diplomas were taken by candidates just last week.
As may be seen from the figures below, nearly 10% more VNs passed the Surgical diploma this year than last. There was also a slight increase this year in the number of veterinary nurses sitting the exams for the Medical diploma, which is only in its second year, although the pass rate remained more or less constant.
