The August edition contains a report of this year's RCVS Day, which was attended by a number of VNs, plus news about VN Council and its new veterinary and lay members. Contact details for the current elected VN members are provided.
There are a number articles about education issues, including a list of successful diploma candidates, a report of a best practice day at the RCVS for internal verifiers, information about changes to the format of VN practical examinations and advice on how to become an RCVS examiner.
There is also a feature on the RCVS Trust and Trust Library, and about how veterinary nurses can apply for educational grants from the Trust and benefit from the Library's variety of services.
