BVNA celebrates its 50th year during 2015!

Originally formed in 1965 to support veterinary Nurses, the association underwent a name change to the British Veterinary Nursing Auxiliaries Association the following year (as both the terms Nurse and Veterinary were protected by statute and charter.)

In line with this the qualification that we know today became Registered Animal Nursing Auxiliary (RANA) to take this into account and did not revert back to VN until the statute protecting the title Nurse expired. So the association was able to resume its original title in 1985 and has grown alongside its members ever since, supporting them and helping to shape the veterinary nursing profession. 

We hope that you will join us in commemorating our 50th anniversary. Look out for more news throughout the year.
