As of June 29, MSU's Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Medicine (ECCM) operations have modified:

All walk-in patients will be evaluated. Life-threatening cases will be admitted. Cases evaluated as stable will be referred to the client’s primary care veterinarian, other facilities, or other services within the MSU Hospital, if possible. Monday–Friday, from 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., the ECCM Service will operate as a “referral only” service. However, walk-in patients with critical illness or immediately life-threatening problems will always receive care. Referring veterinarians should call 517-353-5420 prior to sending any patients to MSU. View the Hospital's full web page.

How To Apply

For the Bachelor’s Degree program:

  • It is recommended that bachelor students complete 28 credit hours, including the prerequisites and additional university graduation requirements, prior to June 1 for the year of matriculation into the Veterinary Nursing Program.

  • If not a current MSU student, an application must be submitted to the MSU Office of Admissions and to the Veterinary Nursing Program. The application to the Veterinary Nursing Program must be submitted by February 10.
  • There are application fees for both the MSU application and the Veterinary Nursing Program.
  • Current MSU students will only need to submit the Veterinary Nursing application.
