Oral Care Nurse Certificate 2019

BVNA are delighted to announce that the Oral Care Nurse Certificate 2019 is now open for registration.  The course was developed in collaboration with the British Veterinary Dental Association (BVDA), Mars Petcare UK and the BVNA.

Over 2,000 RVNs have completed the nine hour online course which has four modules covering anatomy, periodontal disease, oral care consultations and instrument care.

Here are a couple of comments from nurses who have previously completed the course and provided feedback in our survey in terms of what they gained from the course:

“Being able to help clients understand the importance of oral care by having that knowledge to ensure they have an informed understanding.”

“Greater knowledge of importance of dental care and how to try and make it a bigger priority in practice.”


The course is for Registered Veterinary Nurses ONLY and costs £10 for BVNA and BVDA members and £30 for non-members.  If you are an overseas Registered Veterinary Nurse/Technician, you will need to provide proof of this prior to being given access to the course.

All nurses who obtain a score of 70% or more in the final multiple choice questions (MCQ) assessment will receive a certificate and oral care badge.  Nurses who score 80% or more in the final MCQs will be invited to provide their contact details for a chance to attend a bonus CPD day at the WALTHAM® Centre for Pet Nutrition.
