Libby EarleOverall, the results are broadly similar to March 2009, except for the Level 2 Theory exam where only 46% of candidates passed, compared with 67% in March 2009. A total of 486 candidates were entered for veterinary nursing exams in March 2010, up by 200 from March 2009 when 286 candidates were entered for examination.

Libby Earle, RCVS head of veterinary nursing, said: “The number of exam entrants is relatively small, so a small change in the actual number of candidates passing or failing can produce a percentage change that seems relatively large. However, now the results are available, we will look closely at any correlation between the pass-rates and the centres submitting candidates for examination.”

Veterinary nursing students successful in both the Level 3 Theory and Practical exams can, once they have completed the required 94 weeks of training and received their certificates, list as veterinary nurses and join the RCVS Register of Veterinary Nurses.
