New categories to highlight excellence in the profession
The BVNA has announced the launch of three new awards to celebrate inspirational individuals in veterinary nursing as part of its virtual Awards Evening at the ‘This is Us’ online event.
The new awards that will be presented during the Awards Evening are:
- St Francis Award – for a nurse who has shown extraordinary dedication to their team, their patients, and the profession in the last 12 months
- Help in the Community Award – recognising nurses who have excelled in their efforts to help animal owners and their clinical teams during the COVID-19 pandemic
- VNJ Writer of the Year Award – for articles written in VNJ which have inspired positive change, discussion or have improved clinical standards in practice.
The ‘This is Us’ event takes place from 9 to 11 October and the virtual Awards Evening will be held on Saturday 10 October at 6.30pm. The ceremony will be livestreamed on the BVNA Facebook page and Zoom. Dr Jane Goodall will be the keynote speaker for the evening.
Jo Hinde, BVNA President says: “I am thrilled to be hosting this year’s award ceremony and urge everyone to join in by nominating and watching the ceremony live.
“We have chosen 3 brand new award categories that really highlight those individuals who are truly inspirational and as such, I am absolutely delighted that Dr Jane Goodall DME will be our guest speaker for the evening.
“She is the epitome of inspirational, compassion and kindness – all of which are values that veterinary nurses hold dear. This really is an event that’s not to be missed!”
