Nominations open for Blue Cross Veterinary Nurse of the Year award
Nominations are now open for the Blue Cross Veterinary Nurse of the Year award.
The award, which will be presented at BVNA Congress in October (11-13), recognises the dedication of the country’s veterinary nurses and the support they give veterinary teams, pet owners and their animals.
It is given to a veterinary nurse who not only cares for sick and injured pets but goes above and beyond to encourage responsible pet ownership and improve pet welfare in the community.
Last year’s winner was Tyrina Gibson from Newcastle, who was described by her nominator as “inspirational – a champion for animals with extensive knowledge and incredible commitment.”
“Blue Cross gives this annual award in appreciation of the commitment of vet nurses across the UK who work tirelessly to improve the lives of our pets and other animals,” said David Catlow, Blue Cross director of veterinary clinical services.
“We are looking for vet nurses who really go that extra mile to support pet owners in their communities who have a significant impact in improving the nation’s animal welfare”.
Pet owners and veterinary practices are being invited to put forward their ‘star vet nurses’ for the award.
