Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month – What’s It All About?
BVNA’s annual campaign!
Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month, or VNAM for short, was originally started by BVNA in 2005 as National VN Day campaign, and now, since 2012, the campaign takes place throughout the month of May every year.
The purpose of VNAM is to spread the word about the importance of the role of the veterinary nurse in practice and the provision of responsible pet care to the general public.
Each year we see a steady increase of veterinary practices and colleges throughout the UK getting involved promoting the role of the veterinary nurse, organising events ranging from sponsored sky dives, sponsored walks, pet health checks in the park, open days at the practice, to name but a few!
This year is different because of COVID-19 pandemic. All activities are virtual and you can take part directly from your home PC, laptop or mobile phone.
All the activities are virtual and online. The competition details can be found on our website and there is a downloadable digital VNAM Pack to help you.
Help us make this year’s VNAM the best it can be by becoming involved and taking part!

The RCVS launched a short film animation in 2015 to coincide with VN Awareness Month and help raise awareness among the general public of the vital role played by veterinary nurses in animal care and treatment. You can view the video here.
