Help us trial practical tasks at BVNA
2 October 2013
We are heading to the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) Congress soon (11-13 October, Telford), and need you to help us trial some new practical examination tasks, please!
On the Friday and Saturday of the event, we will will be testing some new OSCE (practical examination) stations, and gathering the feedback of attendees. Come and find our stand at the back of the exhibition area, and let us have your views.
“The new tasks have primarily been developed for the pre-registration examinations but may also be used by RCVS Awards for students completing the RCVS Level 3 Diploma in veterinary nursing,” says Julie Dugmore, Head of Veterinary Nursing.
“Please come along and give us your feedback, as it will help us to ensure that the tasks are as relevant as possible.”
Visitors to the stand will also have the opportunity to enter a ‘Refresh your Code knowledge’ quiz by correctly answering three questions about the Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Nurses, to be in with a chance of winning a £50 iTunes or Google Play giftcard.
And everyone who takes part will be given a tin of 'Click to refresh' mints.
Practice Standards - the future
Meanwhile, RCVS Vice-President and Chairman of the Practice Standards Group, Jacqui Molyneux, will be giving a presentation on the future of the Practice Standards Scheme, at 15.15 to 16.15 on Saturday 12 October.
The Scheme is due to be relaunched in 2015, so this will be an important update for accredited practices and those thinking of joining the Scheme.
