If you know someone who deserves public recognition for outstanding work, now is the time to make your nomination for the Veterinary Nursing Golden Jubilee Award 2014.
The RCVS wants to turn the spotlight on people who have made an exceptional contribution to the profession, animal welfare or patient care – whether in clinical practice, education, research or politics.
Nominees can be registered or listed VNs, vets or lay people.
VN council chairman Kathy Kissick said: “I would urge all those who are passionate about the profession and its future to put forward someone they think is deserving of this honour.”
The award was launched in 2011 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first RCVS veterinary nursing training scheme. The first recipient of the award was Jean Turner, while Sue Badger received the accolade in 2012.
The nomination form can be downloaded from www.rcvs.org.uk/goldenjubilee and the web page also features a video of Kathy Kissick talking about the award’s importance. Alternatively, you can view the video on www.youtube.com/rcvsvideos
The nominators must be registered/listed VNs or veterinary surgeons, but the two additional proposers can be lay people.
The closing date for nominations is May 1, 2014.
