This module has been set up from a collaboration between ONCORE and A1 Locums. A1 are a well-known and well respected veterinary recruitment agency who specialise in finding the right positions for vets and vet nurses, and who have 9 years experience in the industry. Between us, we wanted to offer a course that would assist veterinary nurses taking the step into locum work.

This module is suitable for those who are considering, or who have already embarked on a career in locum nursing, and will provide vital tools to help make your career a success, as well as helping you approach any of the stressful aspects of this type of work. This module will also provide you with 5 hours of Continuing Professional Development hours.

You will study for the module alongside like-minded nurses, so will have opportunity to discuss any concerns, fears and experiences toegether, and share stories and tips to help each other!
