The survey will direct the future of the BVNA.
The British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) is asking for veterinary nurses to complete their first annual survey.
In the new survey, the organisation is asking for input not only from its members, but also those who are part of the wider profession. The responses will help the BVNA to direct and inform their future direction.
The survey will cover a range of topics related to the veterinary nursing industry body, including which benefits are value and used by its members, and learning what the veterinary nursing profession would like to see from the BVNA.
It also asks how the BVNA can better engage with both its own members and also the wider profession.
The survey comes after the BVNA reported a turnout of just 3.51 per cent for their council elections in July.
It has been launched ahead of the group’s 50th Annual Congress, which will be held from 6 October- 8 October at Telford International Centre.
Members will be receiving a link to the online survey by email, but it can also be accessed here for BVNA members, and here for the wider veterinary nursing profession. The surveys will be open until midnight on 30 November.
Charlotte Pace, the BVNA president, said: “At the BVNA, our members are at the heart of everything we do – to represent, champion and strengthen the voice of the veterinary nursing profession. This is therefore an important opportunity for members, and the profession as a whole, to have your say on what matters to you.
“Our upcoming 50th Annual BVNA Congress highlights that, as an association, we have progressed and adapted with the times. Your ongoing feedback is vital to enable us to do so.
“We know that there are many new challenges currently affecting veterinary nurses and their teams. Completing the BVNA survey will mean that we can understand more about what the profession needs from us, and how we can shape what we do to meet these needs.
“Take the opportunity to speak to us at BVNA Congress, complete the survey, and make sure you use your voice to shape our direction.”
The results of the survey will be published by the BVNA in early 2024.
