As the 60th anniversary of the veterinary nursing profession draws to a close, the RCVS has released an interactive eBook to mark the VN Jubilee.
The eBook, which highlights the history and future of veterinary nursing, alongside moments of significance within the profession, features video testimonials and interviews from veterinary nurses, including from Matthew Rendle, chair of VN Council, and Julie Dugmore, RCVS director of veterinary nursing.
Julie said: “The launch of the RCVS Diamond Jubilee eBook marks the end of a very special year for the profession, and it’s wonderful that vet nurses across the country will be able to read about the achievements of the profession they are part of.
“I would encourage as many people as possible to read the eBook and find out more about the history and achievements of vet nursing.”
Discussing the 60th anniversary of the profession, VN Council chair Matthew Rendle said: “60 years is a huge milestone for vet nursing. I’ve been in the profession for 30 years and I’ve seen amazing advancements in that time.
“I think this is a great opportunity to take time to reflect on all the progress that has been made and how we’re growing in numbers but also growing in knowledge and becoming more and more respected as vital members of the veterinary team.”
