Win a place on the BSAVA Nurse Merit Award in Dermatology course with Vetruus

Vetruus is giving nurses the chance to advance their nursing skills by winning a place on the

prestigious BSAVA Nurse Merit Award in Dermatology course, which is delivered in conjunction

with Vetruus.


To enter the competition nurses must log in to and visit the dermatology

gallery. Then simply upload a photo or short video from a recent dermatology case they have been

involved in and add a brief description about the case.

The BSAVA Nurse Merit Award in Dermatology course is delivered by renowned specialist

dermatologists, Sue Paterson and Natalie Barnard, and comprises two days of theory and a practical

day at Bristol University. In addition to the study, each nurse is required to submit a case project.

“The latest course was fully booked and we already have a waiting list for the next course, a

testament to the quality of training on offer and the high regard in which a BSAVA Veterinary

Dermatology Award is held,” explains Cathy Gurney, Managing Director at Vetruus.

On passing the BSAVA Nurse Merit Award, in Dermatology, each nurse also automatically qualifies

to become a Vetruus Dermatology Nurse Advisor. “We are keen to support nurses and practices

with both formal training and informal tutorials, such as Vetruus Bites online videos. We want

Vetruus Dermatology Nurse Advisors to become a key part of patient care,” added Cathy.

The BSAVA Nurse Merit Award in Dermatology course normally costs £510 to BSAVA members and

£763 to non-members and the competition closes on 31st December 2017.
