Veterinary nurses who wish to remain on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) register/list have been reminded their renewal fees need to be paid to the College by December 31, 2014.
The renewal fee can be paid online via the My Account area, using the login details sent to all listed/registered veterinary nurses in September.
As well as paying the fee, all nurses need to confirm their registration details and correspondence address, while registered veterinary nurses must declare any convictions, cautions and/or adverse findings and confirm they have complied with the RCVS continuing professional development requirement of 45 hours over a three-year period.
Any vet nurses who have not received their login details, or who have misplaced them, should contact the RCVS registration department by telephone on 020 7202 0707.
For payments made by cheque, the name of the veterinary nurse and the ID number included in the annual renewal letter needs to be written on the back. Cheques need to be received by the RCVS before December 19 and the payment to have cleared by December 31.
Veterinary nurses in need of further guidance should contact the RCVS finance department on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7202 0723.
