A group of students from the College of West Anglia Cambridge campus celebrated becoming registered veterinary nurses over the weekend.

Charlotte Hurrell, Rachel Scarlett and Shelbie Thompson, who are all 21-years-old and Charlotte Liggins, 23, are now fully-registered veterinary nurses.

This year saw the addition of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons pledge and declaration ceremony included in proceedings.

Graduate Rachel Scarlett said: “The graduation ceremony was a great experience and I felt really proud to stand up with my fellow course mates to show dedication to our profession and make a commitment to promoting animal welfare and caring for animals, something I am very passionate about.”

Donna Woodruff, programme manager for Landbased Studies at CWA Cambridge Campus, said: “I am delighted that our learners have been able to take advantage of our new accreditation and that all students in the future will be RCVS recognised too.

“The pledge and declaration ceremony was a momentous occasion for the college and one we look forward to replicating with our future students for years to come.”
