Rebecca Ferne

Veterinary Nurse

Prior to my career in veterinary nursing, I attended the University of Exeter for 5 years, obtaining a BSc in Archaeology with Forensic Science followed by an MSc in Bioarchaeology specialising in Human Osteology. I decided I wanted to be a veterinary nurse in 2016 (a slight change!) and began my studies in 2017 at Lynwood School of Veterinary Nursing. I undertook most of my training at Newton Clarke Vets, qualifying as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in January 2020.

I have a particular interest in feline medicine and nursing and am currently studying towards the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) Certificate in Feline Nursing. I also love medical imaging, particularly radiography as I’ve always had a very keen interest in the skeletal system.

I originally come from a lovely village called Kilmacolm in Renfrewshire, Scotland. We moved to Somerset when I was a child, and aside from moving away to Exeter for the duration of my university life, I’ve been here ever since! Outside of work I love going to gigs and festivals all over the country to watch my favourite bands. I have retained my interest in forensic science and can often be found getting into a good crime documentary or non-fiction book. I live with my partner, and we have a gorgeous but incredibly naughty cat called Crash (a sickly stray kitten I took home just to nurse ‘for the weekend’ 3 years ago), a bearded dragon named Dimitri and two fantail goldfish named Rhaego and Django.
