The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) has announced the launch of Level Up: Veterinary Nurses & Technicians, a new FREE virtual summit it will host annually in October during Veterinary Technician Appreciation Week.
This year’s veterinary nurse summit (October 16 -17) marks the first of the new Level Up series of virtual learning events that NAVC will host under its Virtual XP learning umbrella.
“NAVC is dedicated to helping our veterinary nurses and technicians reach their full potential every day so they can continue to deliver their best to all who depend on them: veterinarians, clients and, most of all, patients,” NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill said.
“This is particularly important and timely given the surge in pet ownership and owners’ desire to provide the best veterinary medical care possible.
“The veterinary nurse virtual summit will enable veterinary nurses and technicians all over the world to participate and benefit in a learning forum many otherwise would not be able to attend. It’s very exciting and furthers the NAVC’s commitment to support the entire veterinary healthcare team.”
Level Up: Veterinary Nurses & Technicians provides veterinary nurses and technicians with a high-quality, complimentary virtual CE event in association with Veterinary Technician Appreciation Week.
Each year, education sessions and sponsorship opportunities will be centred around a theme based on feedback from readers of the industry-leading publication, Today’s Veterinary Nurse, published by NAVC.
This year’s theme is ‘Patient Advocacy’, which supports the unique role veterinary nurses and technicians play as advocates for patient health to their owners, veterinarians, and practice managers.
Veterinary nurses and technicians will receive up to six hours of continuing education over two days through NAVC’s online learning platform, VetFolio.com.
