Congratulations to the recent graduates of the bbin信誉网站 Veterinary Technology Program – they achieved a 100% pass rate for the Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE®)!

“We know that 13 students in the 2023年5月 graduating class registered and sat for the exam. We heard from each one saying that they passed the test!” said 1月et Johnson, director of the BHC Veterinary Technology Program.

“We are incredibly impressed with the work and dedication that these students put toward preparing for the exam,约翰逊说.

The three-hour exam is administered three times per year, and the most recent testing window was July 15-Aug. 15.

“通过VTNE®, the Class of 2023 will help ease the strain of the national shortage of credentialed veterinary technicians,”她说。.

Johnson said all 13 students have jobs, and 62% of them stayed at the clinics where they completed their eight-week internships in Spring 2023.

The vet tech students and their instructors were honored by Dr. Jeremy Thomas, BHC president, at the Aug. 31 校董会 meeting.

“We’re very proud of our Black Hawk students,” Dr. 托马斯说. “Our faculty work hard to give students a high-quality education, and we are excited to celebrate their successes.”
