A Nurse Certificate in Emergency and Critical Care Nursing has been added to Improve International’s range of Nurse Certificate Programmes, which commence between November 2013 and January 2014 at venues in Cranage, Swindon and St Albans.
Emergency cases can be some of the most challenging and rewarding patients to deal with in practice, and this new programme aims to give a thorough understanding of the veterinary nurse’s involvement in ensuring the optimum outcome and survival of these patients.
These modules emphasise a practical approach to cases in practice, using everyday equipment and resources found in the majority of small animal practices.
Other Nurse Certificate courses include:
- Anaesthesia and Animal Behaviour
- Practice Management and Administration (also suitable for vets and receptionists)
For the first time this year, both the ECC Nursing and Anaesthesia and Animal Behaviour training programmes are accredited by Harper Adams University, with successful students receiving their qualification from the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ESVPS).
The programmes are available as modular courses but are also offered as one and two day courses to give maximum flexibility.
Improve MD David Babington said: “We’re delighted to be enhancing the quality of training we provide to VNs. The brand new course in Emergency and Critical Care Nursing is already creating a great deal of interest with many nurses keen to upskill in this demanding but rewarding area of practice.”
