Further qualifications for nursing teamWe are pleased to announce that two of our nurses, Laura Austin and Charlotte Barker, have both recently passed the Certificate of Veterinary Nursing in Emergency and Critical Care.
The City & Guilds accredited course is provided by Vets Now and covers all aspects of veterinary emergency critical care, including: Triage & CPR, shock, vascular access & fluid therapy, emergency diagnostics, monitoring the critical patient and more in depth training of various systemic emergencies. Study took place over 18 months, alongside their normal working hours. Their final examinations were held in Scotland in March with the three written papers taken all in one day.
Of course, we are very pleased as they have share their new found knowledge with our other members of the nursing team, enabling us to provide even better standards of care when vulnerable patients need it most. They have also inspired other nurses to take on the course as well.
We, as a practice, actively encourage continuous professional development and encourage personal growth across the whole practice team. Congratulations Laura Austin RVN CertVNECC and Charlotte Barker RVN CertVNECC!
