Expert veterinary nurses needed!

Veterinary Nursing News

Expert veterinary nurses needed! will shortly be undergoing one of its biggest upgrades since it was first launched in 2000, as part of which, we're now looking for experts in various fields of veterinary nursing to become VetNurse Experts.

Earlier in the year, we conducted a survey of veterinary nurses and veterinary surgeons to discover what you feel are the biggest weaknesses in social media for the sharing of knowledge and experience. 

By far the biggest problem was that on Facebook, you cannot tell how well qualified someone is to answer your question. So unless you know them offline, you simply do not know whether they are an expert in their field, or not. 

As part of the VetNurse upgrade, we'll be launching new 'VetNurse Expert Forums', where any member can come and ask for help, but only those who have applied and been validated as 'Experts' can reply. When they do, their answer can be branded with their logo and contact details. They'll also be rewarded with points. And points mean prizes!

So, you may wish to become a VetNurse Expert because you find it rewarding helping others in the profession, or because you want to promote something - such as your training establishment or perhaps that your practice is a nice place to work, or perhaps you have just written a book! Or maybe you'd just like to be in with a chance of winning some prizes. It doesn't matter which!

Either way, time spent asking or answering questions can also be claimed towards your CPD requirement, using's 'Claim CPD' feature which produces a certificate with a record of those Q&A discussions you have taken part in, completely free of charge.
