Veterinary Nurse

Unicorns of the veterinary industry, nurses are rare finds, in high demand, and truly magical creatures!


A veterinary nurse is the glue that holds a practice together, and has a profound impact on patient care and client service.

It is our goal to optimize the exceptional training our vet nurses have received at Onderstepoort, Faculty of Veterinary Science, and help them to thrive in the small animal private practice. Khula focuses on building on the existing capabilities of a veterinary nurse, providing an in-depth understanding in patient care and disease processes. Our aim is to expand a nurses capabilities to allow them to step into management roles and increase practice revenue. Khula courses are designed for nurses of all experience, those qualified for a number of years and those fresh out the starting blocks.
