The RCVS Veterinary Nurses Council is inviting nominations for this year's Golden Jubilee Award, which recognises an exceptional contribution to the veterinary nursing profession and/or a positive contribution to animal welfare. The award was inaugurated to mark the 50th anniversary of veterinary nurse training, and the first award was presented to Jean Turner in 2011 for her lifetime contribution to veterinary nursing.
‘VN Council feels strongly that the award should be accessible to a wide spectrum of individuals, so nominees could come from veterinary nurses or veterinary surgeons involved in clinical practice, research, teaching or politics – in fact, any aspect of veterinary nursing,’ says Liz Branscombe, chairman of the VN Council.
Both veterinary surgeons and VNs are eligible to make nominations, or to be nominated, for the Golden Jubilee award.
Nominations must be received by May 8 and the award will be presented at RCVS Day on July 6. More information, and the nomination form, is available from the RCVS website at www.rcvs.org.uk/document-library/vn-golden-jubilee-award-2012-nomination-form/
