We aim to…


Help strengthen the Equine Veterinary Nursing career path internationally


Provide opportunities for qualified veterinary nurses to view facilities and observe cases that they would not necessarily have the opportunity to see in their own Practice.


Build a network of veterinary nurses to share ideas, learn from others experiences and create opportunities for career progression.
