It is reflection on the effort and commitment to excellence of our Veterinary Technology program to serve the students at Eastern Wyoming College,” said Roger Humphrey, Vice President for Academic Services.

The Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) is owned and administered by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB). The VTNE is used to evaluate entry-level veterinary technicians’ competency to practice and to be credentialed. The computer-based exam is given in three testing windows per year (winter, summer, and fall) and is constantly updated, reviewed and re-evaluated by highly-qualified item writers so that it remains a valid tool.

Most states and provinces require a passing score on the VTNE as one criterion for receiving credentials. The exam is administered at Prometric Testing Centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
