GIVE Legal protection to the professional title ‘veterinary nurse’.
“Currently the title ‘veterinary nurse’ is not protected in law, and therefore anyone, even if they lack the relevant training and education, can refer to themselves as a veterinary nurse. The veterinary profession believes that this should change.
Registered veterinary nurses (RVNs) are true professionals, who can give medical treatment to, or carry out minor surgery on, animals.
They follow a Code of Professional Conduct, keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date and are subject to a disciplinary process.”
