Veterinary Nurses

The RVC is at the forefront of training and educating registered veterinary nurses (RVNs). Our nurses among the best-qualified in the UK and are central to the care and expertise we provide across our small animal hospital.  

Nursing teams work in each clinical service within the Queen Mother Hospital and deliver around-the-clock care to all patients. Whatever the reason for referral, clients can be assured that their pets will receive the highest quality care.

Many of our veterinary nurses hold or are working towards the RVC's Graduate Diploma in Professional and Clinical Nursing.

One of our nurses was the first in England to become a certified Veterinary Technician Specialist in Emergency and Critical Care (VTSECC) and more of our nurses have now achieved this qualification in other specialist areas.

Our nurses frequently speak at veterinary conferences, such as the British Veterinary Nursing Association's annual congress.
