Applications for Edison State’s Veterinary Technology Program being accepted


PIQUA — Edison State Community College is currently accepting applications for its Veterinary Technology associate degree program.

The Veterinary Technology program provides training in animal husbandry, restraint, nursing, surgical preparation and assistance, drug administration, anesthesia, laboratory techniques, dentistry, and radiography. Students of the program will be prepared to enter careers at private practices, emergency hospitals, specialty offices, research facilities, diagnostic laboratories, and zoos. Veterinary technicians are required to work under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian.

After graduating from an American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)-accredited veterinary technology program, students will be eligible to take the Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE). The Veterinary Technology program has applied for accreditation with the AVMA. This does not guarantee accreditation, nor does it grant any temporary status of accreditation. The VTNE must be passed, along with registration with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board, to practice legally as a registered veterinary technician.

Completed Veterinary Technology applications must be received by April 30, 2022, for the fall 2022 semester. To submit a Veterinary Technology program application, visit www.edisonohio.edu/vet-tech.
