FdSc Veterinary Nursing Internal Quality Assurer

RVN, V1

I have an interest in medical nursing, which naturally drew my attention to the health, welfare and behaviour of hospitalised patients. I firmly believe inpatient care comes hand-in-hand with compassion and understanding, which is why I worked hard with my previous practice to become ‘ISFM cat friendly accredited’. Another interest and personal passion has been helping to train the future generations of RVNs – being a Clinical Coach to Diploma and Degree students has been incredibly rewarding.
