Advancing your veterinary career

The Veterinary Nursing Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) specialization at Eastern Florida State College is a career-oriented degree that builds on skills acquired in the workplace or through previous coursework.

Applicants to the Applied Health Sciences - Veterinary Nursing Specialization must be credentialed veterinary technicians/nurses (CVT, CVN, LVT or RVT). Students with an Associate in Science or Associate in Applied Science degree or higher currently working in a veterinary practice without the credential/certification may qualify for EFSC's Advanced Technical Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management. Students interested in that certificate program should visit the ATC program's web page for more information.

The Veterinary Nursing BAS specialization planning guide outlines upper-division courses in animal nutrition, pharmacology and infectious and zoonotic disease detection, diagnosis, prevention and control. The program also covers veterinary practice management including personnel management, accounting and finance, marketing, legal requirements, and budgeting and planning. View the catalog curriculum with course descriptions.

The admissions process follows the general Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree enrollment steps and deadlines.

The first step in achieving your degree is always personalized advising. The bachelor's advising team (See Contacts & Advising tab on this page) will help you plan courses and review any prerequisite requirements.
