Technicians & Nursing Staff
The Veterinary Technology degree is an intensive program designed to teach nursing skills and technical aspects of patient care for various species. The curriculum varies with each program but usually offers courses in radiology, clinical laboratory/pathology classes, surgery, exotic animal medicine and pharmacology.
Once a degree program is completed, the person must then pass a state and national exam. Only after passing this rigorous exam can a person earn the credentials for a Certified Veterinary Technician in Illinois. Continuing education courses are required to maintain this license.
