Lansing Community College

Veterinary nurses are professionals dedicated to animal health care. They are vital members of the veterinary medical team and are trusted with diverse medical responsibilities, including animal nursing care, life support, laboratory specimen analysis, physical therapy, surgical assistance, anesthesia, dental hygiene, X-ray imaging, nutritional management, and client education. The variety in veterinary nursing makes it a challenging medical career for those who enjoy working with animals and people. Career opportunities exist with veterinary hospitals, biomedical research institutions, zoological parks, and other animal care facilities.

This program is offered through a joint agreement between Lansing Community College (LCC) and Michigan State University (MSU), with Major courses taught by MSU and General Education courses taught by LCC.
