Just over a week to make nominations for VN Golden Jubilee Award
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons is reminding veterinary nurses and veterinary surgeons that they have just over a week to put forward nominees for the annual VN Golden Jubilee Award.
The Award is given in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the profession, animal welfare and/or patient care and nominees can be veterinary nurses, veterinary surgeons or lay people. It was launched in 2011 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first RCVS veterinary nursing training course.
Nomination forms need to be submitted by 5pm on Friday 24 April. The principal nominator must be a registered veterinary nurse or veterinary surgeon although the two supporting proposers can be lay people.
The winner will be chosen by a panel of VN Council members and will receive the accolade at RCVS Day – the College’s Annual General Meeting and Awards Day – on Friday 10 July.
The nomination form is available to download from www.rcvs.org.uk/goldenjubilee. For further information contact Annette Amato, Deputy Head of Veterinary Nursing, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7202 0713.
