National Veterinary Nursing Week

Protexin Veterinary are proud to be sponsors of the BVNA National Veterinary Nursing Week!

This year’s ‘National Veterinary Nursing Week’ will be busier than ever as the Veterinary Nursing community celebrates 50 years of caring for the nation’s pets whilst coming together to promote the profession.

The BVNA wants to encourage all veterinary nurses to promote this important milestone by educating the public about the profession and the vital role that the VN plays in practice.

There are many ways you can get involved throughout the week; by organising a sponsored dog walk, holding charity raffles, pub quizzes or even a sponsored sky-dive! Also on offer from the BVNA are three great competitions to enter with fantastic prizes up for grabs, including an Apple iPad, a digital camera, high street shopping vouchers and a Sony Touch Reader.

This year’s categories of entry are;

  • Best Photo: ‘A Veterinary Nurse working above and beyond the call of duty’
  • Best Community Event: ‘Raising awareness of the role of the Veterinary Nurse’
  • Best Careers Event: ‘Promoting A Career In Veterinary Nursing’

For more information on the event visit the VN Week Blog and you will be able to register online shortly at . Your VN Week poster and information pack will be included in the May issue of VNJ.
