About the course

There is a lot of discussion about the benefits of ambulatory nursing in equine veterinary practice, with proven examples of how it can improve employee satisfaction and the practice’s bottom line.


It is exciting to see that ambulatory nursing is becoming a reality and it is proving to be one solution to helping some of the issues that we are currently experiencing in equine practice. However, as a profession we now need to ensure the role is developed and the introduction of the role is considered to ensure that nurses are safe, feel supported and that they are profitable for the business. Join us on this course to do just that.

- Marie Rippingale, Course Organiser

During the day we will take a deep-dive into the role of an ambulatory nurse. We will explore the key ingredients that are required to make it a success including health and safety protocols, nursing procedures on the yard, client management and clinical scenarios.

This course will provide equine veterinary nurses with the confidence to take on an ambulatory role. And practice partners and veterinary surgeons will receive the tools and information they need to support their practice’s implementation of ambulatory nursing.
