VN Diamond Jubilee Events & Activities

Veterinary Nursing 60: 1961 - 2021 This year’s Diamond Jubilee events will celebrate how far the profession has come and pay tribute to those who have impacted and influenced veterinary nursing over the years. We have planned a programme of events which include:

  • A podcast series with a range of hosts, each reflecting an area of veterinary nursing that they are passionate about;
  • The launch of an ebook encompassing a brief history of the VN profession as well as some of the key factors that form the profession today. 

We’ll be adding fresh content each month so check back soon to see the latest instalments!
