    I really want to work as a veterinary nurse but not really sure where to begin with courses. I’m based in Milton Keynes. Any help and advice would be a great help.

    It's degree based now so you need to go via a University.

    I’ve seen a lot of courses that say they are diploma level 3 but do you think it’s still best to go down the university route?

    I would think the Diploma course would lead to a Veterinary Nursing assistant.
    ( I hope you don't mind but I corrected the typo in your thread title )

    The best route is definitely university. I have an advanced diploma as a veterinary nurse assistant
