The Veterinary Nurse Merit Awards are designed for the motivated nurse in primary care practice, offering structured CPD for qualified VNs who have an interest in developing their knowledge and skills, without the commitment of a certificate or diploma.

The awards are delivered in a blended fashion (combination of online teaching and attendance days) and are worth between 30 – 50 hours of CPD, depending on the subject. Following completion of the teaching, there is a clinically relevant assessment which will further enhance the learning experience. VNs who successfully complete the course will be awarded a BSAVA Veterinary Nurse Merit Award in their chosen subject.
