    Course description and aims

    This qualification is for people who want to develop proficiency as a veterinary
    nurse providing support for an extensive range of emergency and critical care
    procedures. It is the industry standard within a veterinary hospital or
    emergency/specialist veterinary clinic.

    Candidates undertaking study for this qualification require extensive vocational
    expertise and should expect that access through paid employment within a
    veterinary hospital or emergency/specialist veterinary clinic where emergency
    and critical care procedures are performed will be essential for meeting
    assessment requirements of some units.

    The Diploma of Veterinary Nursing (Emergency and Critical Care) is extremely
    complex and requires access and exposure to an extensive range of specialised
    emergency and critical care procedures, including medical emergencies; trauma,
    including road traffic accident, chest, abdominal, head and respiratory;
    surgical (thoracic and abdominal); haematological (disseminated intravascular
    coagulopathy), resulting in blood transfusions; septic (systemic inflammatory
    response syndrome), relating to organ dysfunction; toxin recognition and
    management of topical and ingested toxins; and advanced critical care and
    intensive care monitoring (post-surgical).

    You must have access to a veterinary hospital or emergency/specialist
    veterinary clinic where emergency and specialised critical care procedures are
    performed; veterinarians who perform emergency and specialised critical care
    procedures; patients and clients requiring emergency and specialised critical
    care surgery, nursing and discharge; and the equipment, instruments and
    resources required to perform emergency and specialised critical care
    procedures.
