Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons launches newsletter to keep those involved with veterinary nurse education and training up to date on regulatory and quality assurance issues.
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) has launched a newsletter for those involved with veterinary nurse education and training.
The new title – VN Education – replaces VN Standard, the newsletter from the college’s awarding body, RCVS Awards, and focuses on the regulatory aspects of all veterinary nurse education, including both vocational and undergraduate training.
Libby Earle, RCVS head of veterinary nursing, said: “The new title marks a change in focus, as we wind down the RCVS awarding body and withdraw from awarding vocational qualifications.
“Our core focus is now the quality assurance of all those qualifications leading to registration with the RCVS, and VN Education aims to keep people up to date on regulatory and quality assurance issues.”
Issues covered in the first issue include:
- the recent CPD audit
- a new education subcommittee
- an update on European projects
- a call for nominations to VN council
VN Education will be published three times a year and distributed to those involved in veterinary nurse education. The publication can also be downloaded from www.rcvs.org.uk/publications.
Print copies of the first issue will be distributed towards the end of January 2013.
