VN Awareness Month in May

VN Awareness Month in May

May is Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month. The initiative was originally started by the BVNA in 2005 as National VN Day and has since progressed into National VN Week, followed by a month-long campaign since 2012.

During May, you can get involved in a whole programme of events aimed at spreading the word about the importance of the role of the veterinary nurse in practice and the provision of responsible pet care to the general public.

The BVNA reports that each year, there is a steady increase in the number of veterinary practices and colleges throughout the UK getting involved in promoting the role of the veterinary nurse, organising events ranging from sponsored sky dives, sponsored walks, pet health checks in the park, open days at the practice and much more.

To encourage veterinary nurses, students and practice staff to become, involved BVNA will post out a free VNAM pack including a poster and other promotional items to everyone who registers their interest so they are at least able to make a display within their practice or college.
