'Looking back: stepping forward' - seminar to celebrate 50 years of veterinary nursing


The Veterinary Nurses Council of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is hosting a seminar on 23 June 2011 to celebrate 50 years of veterinary nursing.

The Golden Jubilee will be marked with a series of thought-provoking talks: looking back to celebrate what veterinary nursing has achieved during its first half century, and taking a step forward to consider where it goes next.


Speakers will include pioneers from the early days of veterinary nursing, some of the trailblazers of today's profession and those involved with veterinary nursing overseas.


There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions, put forward views and get involved.


The event, which will be held at the RCVS in Westminster, will start with registration at 10am and close around 4.30pm.


A small number of free tickets remain available for veterinary nurses and others involved with the development of the profession. Those interested should contact Fiona Harcourt, on 020 7202 0773 or f.harcourt@rcvs.org.uk, as soon as possible.
