The VNDL program at Purdue University is designed to allow a student to gain the knowledge, information, and skills necessary to practice as a veterinary nurse.
Students may move through the program at their own pace and have the flexibility to take more classes per semester, allowing a student to potentially complete the Associate Degree curriculum in as little as three years.There are eighteen clinical mentorships which must be completed at a veterinary health care facility. Clinical Mentorships constitute the hands-on clinical portion of the degree. More mentorship information is available here.
