Annual Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month – May 2020
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 to the veterinary profession and pet owners, 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 May 2020 was different due to the restrictions placed on us due to COVID-19. But it didn’t stop the community of veterinary nurses coming out and joining in the campaign.
