NDAF is an association for everyone working as veterinary nurses/technicians or assistants at veterinary clinics and facilities in Norway, and also students studying veterinary nursing. The association was established in 1991 and the main goals then were to arrange seminars for veterinary nurses/technicians and assistants, as well as being the forum for people working with veterinary medicine in veterinary clinics and facilities all over Norway.
NDAF’s goals today are:
The Norwegian veterinary nurse/technician education is located at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science. The education is per 2008 a 2-year university-level education, which is has been since 2003.
Prior to 2003, the duration of the education was one year, with additional mandatory one-year practical experience in order to qualify for the education.
Most of the pages on this site are in Norwegian, but please feel free to use the message board. Most Norwegians understand and write English well and any feedback from veterinary nurses/technicians and assistants outside Norway is greatly appreciated.
