Events Promoting Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month During 2017
In support of our campaign to promote the veterinary nursing profession, BVNA will again be attending the National Pet Show, London at the Excel Centre on Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 May where the team interact will be interacting with the general public answering all sorts of questions; including training to become a veterinary nurse, interesting aspects of the job, the diversity of being a veterinary nurse worldwide, and general enquiries in relation to responsible and preventative pet health care.
The BVNA team will be on Stand A58 within the Animal Zone where we will be offering 10% discount on membership applications and renewals, so if you are there, please pop by and say hello!
We will be handing out promotional bags with information leaflets explaining what Registered Veterinary Nurses do, how to become a veterinary nurse and also a guide to good pet care.
It is great for us to have the chance to discuss current issues and concerns with fellow veterinary nurses and to help keen and enthusiastic young people who are aiming to follow their passion for a career as a veterinary nurse, alongside speaking to pet owners about responsible pet care.
Last year Matthew Rendle RVN, BVNA Council Officer & VNAM Committee Chair, provided two 30 minute presentations on both days on the subjects of; Veterinary Nursing Care of Exotic Species, and Life as a Zoo Veterinary Nurse, from Ants to Elephants, which proved popular and gained much interest with questions from the audience in relation to his role as Head Nurse at London Zoo.
This year we will be providing talks on the subjects 'A Day in the Life of a Registered Veterinary Nurse' and 'What Your Registered Veterinary Nurse Wished You Knew' which will be presented by Wendy Nevins RVN, BVNA Junior Vice President & VNAM Committee Chair.
Some of our Regional Co-ordinator Team have organised both full day and evening events around the UK during May to help raise the profile of the Registered Veterinary Nurse with fundraising on the day for our Charity of the Year, The Daphne Shipman Benevolent Fund.
