Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons announces Royal Charter for Veterinary Nursing as a profession. This came into effect on the 17th February 2015 and represents a huge step forward for all Registered Veterinary Nurses. As well as being a recognition for the hard work that nurses undertake to become qualified, it is also a historic event as the last Charter was granted in 1967! All Registered Veterinary Nurses can now use the postnominals RVN. This means that they will be kept on a register and will be accountable for their professional conduct. Did you know that an RVN, under the direction and supervision of a Veterinary Surgeon, is entitled to give medical treatment and carry out minor acts of surgery under Schedule 3 of the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966?
