#planetrvn for #whatvnsdo – Code Breakers, are you guilty?

The protection offered to the veterinary nurse title by the RCVS Code of Conduct is very important and the veterinary community need to work together to uphold the code.

As its Vet Nurse Awareness month in May this is a timely reminder to value your vet nurses.

In this blog I suggest how to avoid breaking the code when it comes to job adverts and practice websites…

#planetrvn – ranked in the best vlogs in the world!

When your inbox is filled with GDPR requests in can make checking emails rather dull, so I was even more pleased than usual to get an email from blogspot to say my YouTube channel is in the Top 75 Veterinary YouTube channels in the world!

In fact its at No 34! How amazing is that!

Thanks to the amazing subscribers and viewers who have made the channel such a success. We’re very close to breaking into the top 30 channels so if anyone else would like an emails roughly every 2 weeks to show you my latest video then please SUBSCRIBE and boost our chart position!

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!

How do you create Standard Operating Procedures for vet practice?

Good morning,

Hey #planetrvn – You may be having a snow day and seeing fewer patients – maybe you’re going through your huge Vet Nurse To Do List… there’s always things to tweet and improve even in the best of practices. If you’re a vet nurse considering how to write some Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) you might find my latest Recruit4Vets blog helpful.

Stay safe and write an SOP!

#planetrvn – can you fold a drape and place a TST strip safely?

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,
