  • Victoria Bowes

Victoria Bowes RVN, Dip.HE, Dip.RSA

What do you enjoy about your job?
I enjoy being able to support the students through their journey in veterinary nursing. I like to ensure the students are grounded and open minded and non-judgemental with clients when they leave the course. My passion is ensuring animals have all their needs met and that the standards of nursing that the students give are what they would expect for their own animals.

How did you achieve your current position?
A slow climb! I started as a zookeeper initially, then trained as a vet nurse. I worked in a range of zoos and wildlife hospitals, as well as charity organisations and referral hospitals. Eventually I realised I really enjoyed teaching and supporting students, so I started lecturing.
