DkIT host Veterinary Nursing Careers Fair

23 March 2023

DkIT's Department of Agriculture, Food and Animal Health and the DkIT Careers Office recently hosted a Veterinary Nursing Careers Fair on campus. The Veterinary Nursing team welcomed representatives from a wide range of veterinary practices, recruiters and prospective employers, as well as the Veterinary Council of Ireland, the Irish Veterinary Nursing Association and the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.    

Students across all stages of the veterinary nursing programmes really enjoyed the opportunity to meet industry colleagues in person, build relationships and learn about the variety of work placement and employment opportunities available to them. The fair also gave the opportunity for staff to catch up with Veterinary Nursing graduates and find out about the diverse paths their careers have taken since they left DkIT. 

The event closed with a lunchtime presentation from Zoetis, delivered by Lesley Hobson, MVB on the management of osteoarthritis in dogs and cats.
