Veterinary nurses/technicians in Norway are known as "Dyrepleier" and they along with veterinary assistants are represented by the Norwegian Veterinary Nurse and Assistant Association (NDAF--Norsk Dyrepleier og Assistent Forening). The Norwegian veterinary nurse/technician education is a two year university level program taught exclusively at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science. Prior to 2003 it was a one year program followed by one year of practical experience. Nurse/technician graduates of the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science must apply for an official authorisation issued from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet) in order to use the title "Dyrepleier".[1]
