What does your Veterinary Nurse do?
Veterinary Nursing Awareness month is a yearly celebration in recognition of the skills and value registered veterinary nurses bring to animal health and welfare. There are many tasks that nurses undertake including;
Veterinary nurses undergo rigorous, professional training via a degree or diploma qualification and once qualified enter onto the RCVS register of veterinary nurses becoming Registered Veterinary Nurses (RVNs). To remain on the register, they must complete a set amount of continued professional development each year. Orchard vets is a training practice for both diploma and degree student nurses, RVNs wear a green uniform and students a green and white striped uniform.
At Orchard, we offer various nurse clinics including nail clipping, advise on flea and worm treatment, weight management and puppy and kitten care to provide our clients with the best information.
