Protect the title ‘veterinary nurse’
3 June 2015
There are currently no rules or regulations in place to protect the title ‘veterinary nurse’ which means that anyone, regardless of a lack of relevant training or education, can call themselves a veterinary nurse.
In order to ensure that veterinary nursing standards are maintained and animal welfare is not put at risk, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons are lobbying parliament to change the law to protect the title ‘veterinary nurse’ and have put together a video to highlight the importance of this.
Here at Willows, our team of veterinary nurses are all highly qualified, take part in continuous professional development and are absolutely vital to the excellent level of care that we provide to our patients and their owners.
Please take a moment to register your support for protecting the ‘veterinary nurse’ title, to help protect animal welfare and to ensure excellence in all aspects of veterinary care.
