Morehead State Veterinary Technology Students Achieve 100% Pass Rate on Certification Exam
Seniors in Morehead State’s Veterinary Technology Program have achieved a 100% pass rate on the National Veterinary Technology Examination (VTNE), a test required to obtain a veterinary technology license.
“This is exceptional because a 100% pass rate is extremely difficult to achieve due to the difficulty of the exam,” said Dr Philip Prater, professor of veterinary science. He added that this was the first time the program had achieved a 100% VTNE success rate in several years.
This achievement is one of the many achievements of the program this year. Program alumnus Leigha Wright (Class of 2014) was named Certified Veterinarian of the Year by the Texas Veterinary Medical Association. Earlier this year, the program was named the nation’s best associate degree program in veterinary science by Intelligent.com.
“I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of our students and the efforts of our VT teachers for their work in preparing our students for this licensing exam,” said Prater. “Our VT program has had a phenomenal year.”
Students in MSU’s Veterinary Technology programs receive hands-on experience at the Small Animal Teaching Hospital and the Equine Health and Education Center, located at the Derrickson Farm Complex. MSU offers both associate’s degrees and a bachelor’s degree in veterinary technology.
