Welcome to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons

Annual renewals for veterinary nurses

Your annual renewal notice is sent to you by email in mid to late September. The deadline for completing your annual renewal is 1 November each year.

If we do not have an email address for you, then your annual renewal will be posted to your correspondence address.

If your annual renewal fee is not received in full before 31 December then your name will be removed from the Register. Should you, at any point, need to restore your name to the Register, you will need to pay a restoration fee, in addition to your outstanding annual renewal fee.

If you have not received your annual renewal notice by the beginning of October, or you have any questions about completing your renewal and paying your fees, please contact the Registration Department on 020 7202 0707 or

What you need to do

All veterinary nurses must annually:

  • Pay an annual renewal fee of £61 (Newly registered nurses do have a fee to pay.)
  • Confirm/amend their Register details
  • Confirm they are compliant with our CPD policy
  • Declare any convictions  


Information on how disclosures relating to the criminal convictions are handled, together with a disclosure form, can be found in the 'Related documents' box.


How to complete your annual renewal and pay your fee

Please click on the blue ‘My Account’ button, in the top right hand corner of this website. You will be asked to enter your username and password, which you were sent in last year’s renewal notice.

If you do not know your password you can still complete your annual renewal online via the ‘My Account’ area. Simply click on ‘Reset my password’ and ‘Reset my username’ underneath the ‘Sign in’ button, enter your username and follow the instructions. If you are logging in to the ‘My Account’ area for the first time, you will be prompted to create a security question before you can enter. Please note you must have an email address on your record in order to use this facility. If you do not, then you will need to contact the Registration Department.

Once you have accessed the ‘My Account’ area, you will need to confirm your Register and correspondence details, pay your fee, declare any convictions and confirm that you comply with our current requirements for continuing professional development (CPD). Receipts are also available in the ‘My Account’ area.

Please note that changes of name should be accompanied by a photocopy of the appropriate evidence, for example, a marriage certificate. If your circumstances have changed, you can also remove your name from the Register in the ‘My Account’ area.

If you have any questions about completing your renewal and paying your fees, you may find the answers on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Alternatively, please contact the Registration Department on 020 7202 0707 or for assistance.
