Abstract

The history of the university course in veterinary nursing in South Africa is reviewed from its inception in 1977 to 2000.

Selection criteria and course subjects, including clinical work, are supplied and the changes in these, following the introduction of a new curriculum in 1993/94, are highlighted. Reference is made to the legal status of the nursing profession.
