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.  

We invite you to join us for a day to explore the role of the ambulatory nurse and how to introduce ambulatory nurses to your practice.

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 from health and safety protocols through to client education and communication.

During the day we will explore the procedures that can be delegated to a nurse in a yard setting, discussing Schedule 3 updates and how these impact ambulatory nurses. From health and safety protocols and client education through to making a profit, this one day course will provide you with the tools and information to make ambulatory nursing a success in your practice.

We will cover topics including health and safety protocols for ambulatory work, how to create support networks for ambulatory roles, how to educate and manage clients as well as how to make ambulatory nursing profitable.

The day will provide equine veterinary nurses with the confidence to fly solo and take on an ambulatory role. It will provide practice partners and veterinary surgeons with the necessary information and tools to help them support the introduction of ambulatory nursing in their practice.

What will I learn?

By the end of the course you will...
1. Be able to establish good health and safety protocols for ambulatory nurses.
2. Know how to correctly stock the car ready for visits.
3. Understand the importance of a good support network for equine nurses carrying out an ambulatory role.
4. Understand strategies that ensure ambulatory nursing is profitable for equine practices.
