Three University Centre Myerscough veterinary nursing graduates are looking forward to a promising career after they were recognised for the quality of their studies.
Emily Corrie, Emma Dever and Katie Scott all work for Kentdale Referrals, in Milnthorpe, and all scooped prizes at the end of their study programmes in the summer.
Foundation degree student Emily received the Robert Allan Memorial Award, Emma picked up the Diploma HE Clinical Veterinary Nursing Student of the Year Award, while Katie was named FdSc Veterinary Nursing Student of the Year.
Usually, the awards would be presented during Myerscough’s annual graduation ceremonies, but as they have been postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all three have instead received written citations from their tutors.
They said: ‘’Emily has constantly worked hard across all aspects of the veterinary nursing course, diligently completing her nursing progress log to an excellent standard and consistently achieving high marks in academic work.
“Emily is a real team player who has always contributed well in lessons and also throughout her practical placement.
“We wish her every success in the future and we know she will make a fantastic member of the nursing profession.
“Katie has been an exemplary student throughout the course, constantly working hard to achieve excellent results across all subjects.
“In addition to well-deserved academic success, it is very noticeable that Katie always makes the time to help her fellow classmates, supporting them wherever she can.
“This selfless attitude and positive nature have made Katie a pleasure to teach and we wish her every success in her chosen career as a veterinary nurse, where she will be a wonderful asset to any team.
“Emma is an outstanding student and gained some fantastic results in her assessments on this demanding advanced qualification.
“She has been a positive member of the group throughout the course and her engagement in class has been exemplary. She has been a pleasure to teach and we wish her every success in the future.”
