After 2 years of determination, dedication and hard work, our student nurses Frances Cheyne and Suzy Meston have got the results they were waiting for. Frances and Suzy have now both qualified and very proudly achieved their RVN (Registered Veterinary Nurse) status.
They both undertook their college training at SRUC, Aberdeen with placement at our small animal veterinary hospital at Kingswells. We are pleased to announce that they will both remain an integral part of Ardene House Vet Practice Ltd.
You can recognise all our Registered Nurses by the bottle green uniform they wear; this distinguishes them from our student nurses who wear the striped green and white uniform. This allows student nurses to be recognised within the hospital and supported as required.
Frances and Suzy will now go onto the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) VN Register.
RVNs promise and solemnly declare that their constant endeavour will be to ensure the health and welfare of animals committed to their care.
All RVNs are accountable for their conduct and subject to the standards set by the Veterinary Nurses Council. These standards including a requirement to undertake Continued Professional Development (CPD). Frances and Suzy are required to complete an average of 45 hours of CPD over a 3-year period to remain on the Register.
RVNs also follow the RCVS Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Nurses
Gaining RVN status is something to be very proud of … Well done Frances and Suzy!
