Veterinary Technology (VETT) prepares students with knowledge and skills necessary to provide general veterinary nursing care and technical assistance in the varied disciplines found in the practice of veterinary medicine and surgery. These include nurse anesthetist, operating room technician, radiology technician, dental hygienist, medical laboratory technician, as well as clinical and practice management. The program is recognized by the Nevada State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners and is fully accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA), 1931 N.

The Veterinary Technology Program has entered into a unique agreement with the Western Veterinary Conference that allows educational opportunities to augment the student’s learning experience. This agreement also makes available nationally and internationally recognized Doctors of Veterinary Medicine that act as visiting instructors in many disciplines.
