Nominations are sought by the Veterinary Nursing Council (VN Council) for candidates for the annual VN Council Golden Jubilee award.

 

This award is decided each year by VN Council in May, and veterinary nurses, veterinary surgeons and lay people can be nominated. It may conferred on an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the veterinary nursing profession.

 

"We are looking for those who have helped shape the VN profession," says Kathy Kissick, VN Council Chairman. "This award recognises those who have really made a difference and who can truly be described as exceptional."

 

Any veterinary nurse or veterinary surgeon can make a nomination, and they need to be supported with detailed evidence for VN Council to consider. Nomination forms are available from the RCVS website (www.rcvs.org.uk/goldenjubilee) and need to be received by 1 May.

 

The VN Council Golden Jubilee award was instigated in 2011 to celebrate the first 50 years of veterinary nurse training. Its 2012 recipient was Sue Badger.
