My career at Myerscough College – Inspiring Excellence
About the role
Can you inspire excellence within our veterinary nursing students?
Myerscough School of Veterinary Nursing has been delivering inspirational teaching to student veterinary nurses since the 1970’s, supporting countless exceptional, fully qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses (RVNs) into the profession; you may be one of these outstanding RVNs!
Our portfolio of qualifications expanded to include higher education provision from 1998 and since then we have continued to innovate, developing a range of professionally accredited post-registration qualifications for RVNs to continue their personal and professional development, such as the RCVS accredited Diploma Advanced Veterinary Nursing and more recently a suite of RCVS accredited Certificates in Advanced Veterinary Nursing. We are also committed to supporting the progression of RVNs from Foundation Degree by offering flexible part-time BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing top-up degree programmes.
Exponential growth of student numbers in the early 2010’s due to our excellent student achievement and progression into employment resulted in considerable investment in the veterinary nursing department with the establishment of a multi-million-pound state-of-the-art Veterinary Nursing Centre in the heart of our beautiful campus. The facility comprises a number of well-equipped classrooms with interactive boards to support your creativity in lesson delivery, comfortable staff offices which enhance collaboration and innovation between colleagues, and a clinical facility with a significant number and range of high-quality resources to support the teaching of Day One and higher level / complex practical skills, including:
- Operating theatre
- Preparation room
- Radiography room
- 2 consultation rooms
- General ward
- Medical / critical care ward
- Cat ward
- Dog ward
- Food preparation room
If you would like to play your part and contribute directly to the creation of high-quality RVNs to support the future sustainability of our exciting and progressive profession, we would love to hear from you! We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated RVNs with industry experience to join our amazing, Grade 1, department as a Lecturer in Veterinary Nursing, where you will be fully supported in this next exciting step of your professional career.
