SLVC becomes a Nurse Training Practice

We are now an accredited Training Practice of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, meaning we are able to train student Veterinary Nurses. Emma, who has been with us for 12 months now as a veterinary care assistant has taken our first training vacancy.

We work closely with Bottle Green Training Centre where Emma attends once a week to receive her tuition. The rest of her training is completed within the practice under the supervision of Allison, Emma’s clinical coach and one of our Registered Veterinary Nurses.

Emma will be completing her Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing, after which she will be equipped to work in practice as soon as she qualifies. The course is  two and a half years  and is a type of vocational training that allows her to get ‘stuck in’ straight away. She will then be registered on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Register of Veterinary Nurses.

Promoting Best Possible Practice

Becoming a training practice not only gives us the opportunity to train veterinary nurses, it will also ensure that we are up to date with the latest procedures and research available to the veterinary world. This will help us to continue to provide the best possible care to our patients and provide the best possible service to you as clients.
