Erika Feilberg RVN
Knowing I wanted to work with animals but being unaware that veterinary nursing was a profession, I undertook an HND in animal care and was determined to become a veterinary surgeon.
However, during my HND I began volunteering for my local PDSA hospital where I worked mainly assisting the RVNs in the practice. It did not take long for me realise that veterinary nursing was the career I had been looking for and enrolled that year for a BSc in Veterinary Nursing. I graduated in 2014, and I am immensely proud to be an RVN, especially at this time when the profession is undergoing such positive change.
