Becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) is intensive and involves a minimum of two years of training. After qualifying, a RVN must maintain their place on the VN Register by adhering to a strict code of professional conduct, which includes a minimum of 15 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) per year. Many RVNs will also then undertake additional advanced qualifications in their chosen area of speciality.
Unfortunately, despite all of this, the title of Registered Veterinary Nurse is still not a protected one. However, all Registered Veterinary Nurses hold this badge in recognition of their training and their commitment to the profession.
We are very proud to have a team of over 40 Registered Veterinary Nurses across Langford Vets, specialising in all areas of Small Animal and Equine nursing care. You can be assured that there will be a qualified and dedicated RVN caring for your pet through every stage of their visit to Langford Vets.
During Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month, we will be talking about various RVN-related topics over on our social media pages, so if you haven't followed us on Twitter and Facebook yet, then head to:
