NORFOLK, NE – Students interested in possibly working in a career with animals have had the opportunity to experience a day in the life of one field in particular. The Northeast Community College Veterinary Technology program opened its doors to prospective students recently.
During the two-day event, high school students and prospective non-traditional students visited with students and faculty members, said Dr. Michael Cooper, program director.
“Individuals also participated in hands-on workshops that cover several aspects of a veterinary technology career. They saw our clinic, labs, surgery, bay and livestock handling areas.”
Northeast’s Veterinary Technology program is designed to prepare entry-level veterinary technicians via classroom study, laboratory, and clinical practice with fundamental veterinary technician skills.
The program sponsors a career day each November. Anyone interested in next year’s event may contact the Northeast Admissions Office at 800-348-9033 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
