Cornell University Veterinary Specialists 24 Hour Emergency and Critical Care

Nursing Care

At CUVS, our veterinarians aren't our only specialists. We are proud to employ a truly extraordinary group of veterinary technicians and assistants, many of whom have attained advanced credentials and are leaders in their fields.

Much as their registered nurse counterparts in the field of human medicine, our highly trained licensed veterinary technicians work hand-in-hand with our doctors to provide outstanding care and comfort for our patients. We are also proud to have several Veterinary Technician Specialists (VTS) on our staff. An elite group within veterinary nursing, these specialists have completed the most advanced level of training available in their particular specialty - Emergency/Critical Care, Internal Medicine, or Anesthesia - including extensive clinical experience and continuing education, and successful completion of a rigorous examination.

As part of our educational mission, CUVS is partnering on initiatives with local AVMA-accredited veterinary technician training programs. Our goal is to advance the profession by providing students, technicians, and technician specialists with advanced clinical and didactic training. By dedicating staff, facilities and resources toward this goal, we aim to address the shortage of highly skilled veterinary support personnel.

Our dedicated nursing staff is available around the clock. They are committed to providing our patients with exceptional nursing care, and our clients and referring veterinarians with outstanding service.
