Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

This article is about the personal experiences of the author as they embarked upon a PhD. The PhD was in the area of a major chicken welfare issue (the hunger of broiler breeders) and represented a challenging but exciting time in the author’s career as she tried to work out how the chickens felt and what they wanted. Careful selection of the PhD topic is important and there are many topics suitable for veterinary nurses. Funded PhDs are preferable for financial reasons and the stipend available is reasonably competitive with a veterinary nurse salary so should not be a barrier to applying
