BEVA is introducing hands-on sessions for veterinary nurses at this year’s Congress (11-14 September 2024, the ACC in Liverpool).

The nursing stream will run all day on Friday 13 September and not only will there be a dedicated lecture and workshop stream but there will also be practical sessions on critical care and bandaging, casting and suturing.

In the critical care session, nurses will be able to problem solve and carry out nursing tasks on a variety of models to simulate treating real life critical care cases.

In the bandaging, casting and suturing practical, nurses will be immersed in a learning experience where they can showcase their existing skills and learn new ones. 

The nursing stream also includes a neurodiversity workshop which is open to all. 

Marie Rippingale, BEVA’s Equine Veterinary Nurse Committee Chair, said “All in all - this Congress nursing stream is not to be missed!

"It is a perfect balance of theory and practical sessions run by friendly and approachable experts in their field who are keen to share their knowledge and experience for the benefit of the equine nursing profession.”

Tickets are £221 for all three days for BEVA nurse members.

Day tickets and practice passes are also available.
