“My education helped me find a career I love,” says Jenna Pleban, Stautzenberger College graduate. Jenna knew she wanted to spend her future living out her passion rather than settling for just any career. Her mother was the one who inspired her to become a veterinary technician. “My mother knew my love for animals and suggested it to me,” recalls Jenna. After enrolling at Stautzenberger College, Jenna studied hard and developed her practical skills. She completed an externship at the Animal Wellness Center of Strongsville, where she was hired. We are so proud of Jenna for achieving her professional dream!

What You Learn in a Veterinary Technician AAS Program

For each graduate of a program, we highlight three different courses. During the program, Jenna took courses such as: Veterinary Anatomy Systems & Functions, Microbiology, and Laboratory & Exotic Animal Medicine.

In these courses, she learned about:

  • The basics of anatomy and physiology of small and large animals in regard to the endocrine, sensory, cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, and reproductive systems
  • The classification, physiology, and morphology of disease-causing microorganisms; proper laboratory techniques; and diagnostic testing of pathogens
  • Regulations concerning the exotic medicine and care and use of laboratory animals

In addition to veterinary technician-related subjects, general education courses such as College Math and History of American Government allowed Jenna to fulfill associate degree requirements.
