It will depend on which state in the US you are planning to move to. Some states require licensure of veterinary technicians while others require little to nothing to work in that position.

If you will let me know where you are planning to move to in the US, I will help you find an answer.

Here is some basic information on being a veterinary nurse in Australia
Australia
Veterinary nurses in Australia have a two tier hierarchy consisting of Qualified Veterinary Nurses who hold a Certificate IV in veterinary nursing and Diplomaed Veterinary Nurses who hold a diploma in veterinary nursing. Diplomaed Veterinary Nurses may apply for further training in a specific field to receive "Extended" qualifications[4] . Veterinary nurses exhibiting excellence in their field may be recognised jointly by the Veterinary Nurses Council of Australia (VNCA) and the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) with the post-nominal letters AVN (Accredited Veterinary Nurse)[5] .

Here is a link to help you find some info on the requirements for Australia and some contacts to ask specific questions about whether your education from here in the States will transfer to Australia.

Hey Kristin,
From the information i have been looking into regarding me going to the USA to work and the knowledge and course that you guys do over there you should have no problems coming here to work as long as you bring some references from people you have worked with and your certificate stating that you are qualified that would probably be enough information.
The only thing i would say you would have to look into would be getting a working visa for australia but once you have one of those as well you will be able to work in any state in aussieland as well.

Hope this has been helpful if you want to know any more info or anything else just let me know.

Megs,

I was thinking of moving to Australia to work as a vet tech. in the next few months. Is there a high demand for this work? Also, many hospitals and clinics in the states do not require CVT certification (certified veterinary technician), is this similar to Oz. For instance, I have several years direct experience, would this be enough to overcome the lack of certification. If you know of any areas that are better to work, could you please let me know.

If you come to the states with significant experience that will generally be sufficient enough for you to work. A CVT will always guarentee your job. But, be prepared, you will be paid much less than you were in Oz.

Thanks!

Hey there yeah experience should be enough. There is a good website to be able to find work from www.kookaburravets.com they generally have a few jobs on there. But experience will make good for the lack of certificates some place like you to have them but there are a lot of places that generally not too worried as long as you know what your doing.I really dont think there pay here is much good either.
But if you need anymore info or direction of where to get info just let me know will be glad to help you out.

Hey there Daisy,
Its pretty rare to find a job just working as a Surgical Tech, you'll find that most of the positions will require experience in all areas of Nuring. There are a few positions like that in Specialist Centres and Teaching Hospitals(as in Universities), but the most part Nursing jobs will incorperate all aspects of nursing, possible even reception duties in some places as well. Majority of the hospitals over here aren't big enough to have staff allocated to one position, majority of hospitals are under staffed so you need to be willing to work in all areas for the hospital to work otherwise things just dont get done. But also in saying that if you show skills in the surgical area you will most likely get to work in that area majority of the time and if you have the knowledge you will definatley be looked at for positions in Specialist Centres and Teaching Hospitals. Hope this hasn't disappointed you at all it is still a great place to work in hospitals in Australia i wouldn't have been doing it for the past 15yrs if i didn't think so.

Hey Megs,
I am confused are you a vetinary tech that works in an animal hospital or clinic. Or a veteran nurse that works in a hospital or on an base?
Question:
Would it be better for me to get my LPN and RN in Australia? Because here in the states you have to get your licsence and if you move to a different state depending on the state retake the test... Should I just wait and take the course over there? How much does it cost there? Also is Surgical Tech a job that would qualify for us to move there? thanks so much Daisy

Thanks for your reply. I didn't think the pay would be great. However, it's nice to know that there's availability in a field where I have experience. I'm considering a range of jobs, or activities for income while living abroad. Might you have additional suggestions or websites for someone interested in animals or public relations?

Buongiorno Elisa! I am a student in America, to become a veterinary technician - in your country I think I would be a veterinary nurse. I located a veterinary clinic in Roma that has a corresponding clinic in New York City, perhaps you could contact them? www.vetgroups.net/ I wish to work in Italy in a few years, my husband is Italian and I hope that we can move there and work, I would love it! I hope this helps you!

All greetings! I am student of 4 courses of veterinary academy in Moscow, I'm going to work in the USA in this summer! Help and prompt, how it is possible to find work in veterinary clinic in the USA?
Thank you)

One of the best ways to find work in a veterinary clinic in the US is to search the veterinary magazines, state veterinary medical association websites and other veterinary websites for classified ads. You will find listings in these places more often then you will find them in local newspapers.

You may also wish to submit resume's to veterinary clinics in the area you will be moving too, however this route tends to get the least response as they get filed away unless they are actively looking for help.

Thanks!Can I find this newspeapers in the internet?I don't know where I will go and stay in USA!

Still I heard that veterinary science in America is very strict! That hardly the worker for 2,5 months and without an American education is necessary to clinics!!!!
Advise, as whom it is possible to work in veterinary clinic without the diploma!! (It is final, not the cleaner)?
And still, Have you got any vacancies or can you help to be arranged in veterinary clinic? (The main thing not money, and experience which I will get!)

Yes, you can often find newspaper classifieds on the internet. Search for the name of the city you are interested in along with "newspaper".

The positions available in most clinics that don't require a specific education are generally kennel assistants or veterinary assistants. These are entry-level positions. Both of these positions are likely to involve cleaning of cages and facilities.

You might want to contact the American Veterinary Medical Association or the state veterinary medical association for whatever state you want to visit as they are going to be better able to help you find a position that fits your skills/knowledge and suit your need for experience.

Hi Elisa, I just saw your post...have you found any work in the states yet? If you still have any questions I am happy to help answer them! I am in school right now getting my certification. I may be moving to Milan in about a year and am curious what licensure Italy requires for vet techs. Any info you could send my way would be EXTREMELY helpful.

Best,

Hi Kathleen,
I work in Australia as a veterinary technician. With you being a qualified Veterinarian you would definatley be able to get a job as a veterinary tech or vet nurse for sure. Not sure what you would have to do to be able to work as a vet, but as a technician or nurse you would have no problem geting work at all.

Hi Megs
I was wondering if you knew anything about studying vet nursing in Australia for international students. This is a brand new idea I've had so I haven't looked into anything about study visas or whether it would even be possible for me to do but I just came across this site and thought I'd ask!
Thanks!

Hey before i answer any questions about studing veterinary nursing questions in oz you should know that the qualification you get here is very under rated compared to the type of qualification you would get in either america or england not sure of the qualifications you get in Ireland but you possibly may be better off getting your qualifications their then coming here to work. Sorry if that is a disappointment to hear but there are much better places in the world that you will get a better education in thearea of veterinary nuring than australia we are a bit behind the rest of the world when it comes to the offical training for this job.
If you have anymore questions please dont hesitate to ask i am all the more willing to help you in any way you would like.

That's actually a big help! Just looking at different options at the moment and I obviously want to get the best qualification that I can. Would chances of finding work in oz be greater if you've got a UK/Irish/other qualification so? How are you going on your move to USA? With work visas..how are you going about all that?

You will have no problems getting work in oz with pretty much any overseas qualification. Our qualifications are getting better but they still have a little bit to go before they are up to the overseas qualifications. My plan to move overseas has been put on hold for a bit i ended up getting a really good position at on of the University teaching hospitals here which i am really enjoying at the moment, so haven't really done anything about visas for the US but i am looking into doing a veterinary techincians course in the US but doing it by correspondence but still looking into that at the moment.

You would need to contact the veterinary licensing board in California and present your case to see if they would accept your experience/education as sufficient for registration as a veterinary technician in their state. www.vmb.ca.gov/

Richard in Singapore, Singapore

Hi everyone,

I have a degree in Veterinary Medicine from the Philippines, worked in a small animal clinic for 4-5 years as assistant Veterinarian. Then I moved here in Singapore (for financial reasons) and worked as a Veterinary Technician in small animal hospital for 3 years. Currently, I'm working as a Veterinarian in an animal research facility (SPF)dealing with rodents and I'm a Registred Animal Laboratory Technician (AALAS).
Since young, it's my dream to work and live in the USA. Do you guys have any idea who or any workplace that provides sponsorship to foreigners so I can work in the US based on my experience and qualification?

Thank you,
Richard

- If you come to the states to be an RVT, you must take the AVMA test and pass it to work in the states. You may have to take some additional classes due to the fact that I do not know the classes over there. I know that when I move to Europe, I will have to take an extra year course to be an RVT in Germany. I hope this helped!!!!

Most states in the US require that you have a degree in veterinary technology from an AVMA accredited program, so start by looking at the AVMA's website to get a list of programs.

If you know what state you are interested in living in when you come to the US, I would also recommend contacting the veterinary technician association in that state to discuss their opinion of the different schools in the state. They are in a position to know more about the specific schools because they work with or interact with students from the different schools. They also likely know some of the veterinary technician educators at the different schools, so they really are in a better position to recommend a school in their state.

That sort of information isn't just listed on most states' websites. You need to contact the veterinary technician credentialing agency in the state you are interested in moving to and send them a list of your credentials/training. They can then tell you what they would require from you in order to credential you in that state.

Are you eligible for a green card through family/marriage? You will NOT get a green card/work visa by virtue of being a vet tech/nurse. Getting a state license isn't the problem, it's living and working legally in the US that is.

What you will be required to do will vary depending on what state you wish to practice in, but the place to start is to look at the Program for Assessing the Veterinary Education Equivalence. The majority of states require you to have completed this program before applying for licensure as a veterinarian if you are coming from outside the US.

Same situation with me. I have did some research, it seems like Vet Tech is the only possibility... I plan on taking RVT test and work as a Vet Tech... With knowledge from 6 years of vet school we should hopefully be able to find a job.

In order to work as a veterinary technician in Arkansas you must meet the credentialing requirements which are found here: www.arvetboard.com/sgvetboard/vettechreq.asp

You may be able to get special consideration due to your education, but because the certification is a legal credential it's also possible that they will not be able to make a special exception. You will need to contact the veterinary licensing board to ask them directly.

Regardless of education/credentialing, you can work as a veterinary assistant.
