I’ve somehow managed to have a few pieces on a similar theme out at once, excellent or awful planning depending on your view point but for me it does allow me to put together a themed blog for the first updated of my new website so I’m quite happy with that!
SIII delegation is the legal right for vets to delegate certain protected skills to vet nurses who are on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons register. They must also be competent and trained and willing to accept the delegation. This is a two-way process that needs to be fully understood but all parties – vet, vet nurse, team and client.
Recently I have written for Vet Record, The Webinar Vets new Gazette and also for Vet Times on this subject and I’m really pleased with the picture its building of what we need to to do with SIII delegation and why.
The RCVS survey of 2017 showed vets and vet nurses didn’t fully understand the process of delegation, but both parties wanted to delegate and accept delegation more, so I’m hoping that in these articles I cover how we can do this, why we should and where we can get some help.
After all #PlanetRVN is only one letter away from #PlanVetRVN
The Webinar Vet Gazette article with links to RCVS case guides is here
The Vet Record article is free to download as a PDF until the middle of November and is here
Finally the link between EMS, the TP scheme and the AVS all rolled into one and is available here
Making work fit in with all the different situations life throws at you can be tough. I’m hoping this blog can help as it highlights that asking for part time or flexible working hours is not just for those with children or those returning to work after maternity leave.

Its hard to believe how low I was feeling when I started recording some videos hoping to help a few students… that was 2 years ago and look where we are now! The student vet nurse community really saved me with their positive feedback – THANK YOU!
It’s sometimes the little things that can cause us stress in exams – the things we do every day. I’ve made this video as placing the TST strip correctly for use can trip you up in a stressful OSCE exam. Have the sound up loud as I’m unusually a little quiet,
How do you know when your pop-offvalve is open?? Or more importantly when it’s closed??

The videos can help with pre-registration OSCEs with the RCVS, Diploma OSCEs with City and Guilds and CQ, as well as practical exams for degree programmes.
