BVNA Educators

BVNA VN Educator Network: Building connections between UK veterinary nursing training providers

Following from the ambitions outlined by the joint BVNA/RCVS VN Futures project, the BVNA have been working to establish a community of educators and training providers responsible for the delivery of VN training within the UK. The principal aims for the community are to build a relationship between the BVNA and VN training providers, and to enable important and constructive conversations between community members on matters relating to VN training.
