Veterinary Nurse Awareness month is run each year by the BVNA 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. Davies, who has a highly valued team of more than 60 veterinary nurses, is supporting the campaign by inviting vet nurses to network with some of their world renowned specialists over lunch, attend lectures and take a guided tour of their state-of-the-art veterinary hospital. There will also be the opportunity for informal interviews for those who may be looking to progress their career in referral nursing.
Kimberley Buckley GradDipVN RVN, who has worked for Davies for the past six years, said: “The nurses here are Davies are all really strong because we all work to the same high standards and we all want the best care for the patients. We’re a friendly team who all get on together and we also get on with all the other members of the practice so it’s a nice working atmosphere.”
Ian Battersby, Internal Medicine Clinician, continued: “Our nursing team never fail to amaze me. They work to incredibly high standards, they are always keen to learn and understand as much as possible about the condition they are managing so that they can make sure that everything is done to as high a standard as possible. That’s really useful for me as a clinician because I can get their insight and that influences how I manage the case. It’s an impressive team working all together and as a vet I consider myself very lucky to work alongside them.”
The Davies Nurse Open Day is on Saturday 20 May 2017 from 9.30am – 2pm.
