1st May 2018

BVNA are extremely excited as this year the association aims to reach out to more practices, vets, colleges, schools, organisations and members of the public than ever before.

There are many ways you can help! As well as the traditional waiting room displays, open days and careers evenings, there will be daily Facebook posts scheduled detailing the varied roles carried out by veterinary nurses and we are hoping that you can help by sharing these as much as you can.

 

Plus this year there is a new initiative, we're asking for your help in making a quick video (no longer than 30 seconds) which explains ‘Why RVN’s Are Important To You’!
