For Vet Nurse Awareness Month...

We couldn't be prouder of our nurses. Across our global network, every day, our RVNs each make a vital contribution to the care we provide to our patients. Their journeys might look different, but all are a key part of our supportive community, dedicated to excellence in animal care. 

For Vet Nursing Awareness Month 2024, we've created a video that sums up how important, varied and valued the role of a veterinary nurse is. Our goal was also to showcase the variety of pathways and opportunities available to a vet nurse. Summing up that experience, we came upon a phrase that will be familiar to anyone who's spent time around a nursing team "I'm a vet nurse...of course I can".

Considering a career as a veterinary nurse?

Veterinary nurses are highly skilled, compassionate, and valued members of our veterinary teams.

The role of an RVN is vital in ensuring the well-being of the animals in the care of a hospital or practice. Nurses do incredible work supporting the treatment and care of animals, using their specialised skills and knowledge in their work, every single day.

Nurses support owners and offer advice on all aspects of animal care. It’s a truly rewarding career where you can really see the positive impact that your work has on animals and their families. Often you’ll be the one caring for an animal throughout its journey with the practice or hospital, and helping to ensure the best possible outcome for that patient with your work.
