Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month

May 5, 2021

This month is Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month, #whatVNsdo #VNAM2021 #planetRVN.   The purpose of VNAM is to spread the word to the veterinary profession and pet owners about the importance of the role of the veterinary nurse in practice, and the provision of responsible pet care to the general public. 

Here at Rowan we are proud of our RVN team and wanted to celebrate the amazing work they do as part of the whole nursing team.

This year we have four registered and qualified members of the team, with two more due to start later in the month.

Meet our nursing team

We have Helen, Amy and Beccy and Hayley, our head nurse. Hayley manages the team across the two sites.  We will share their biographies during the month so you can get to know them better . The theme of this years VNAM is “sustainability” with a tag line of “I’m a Veterinary nurse, and I’m human too!”  For more information on the campaign, click the link HERE

As part of the month there is a great competition for owners to get involved with.  The competition is being run by the BVNA. You could be the lucky winner of a £50 Love2Shop voucher or one of two runner up prizes of £25 Love2Shop voucher. See details of entry below and good luck! Please also tag us, #rowanvets in any entry.

Category E for Pet Owners | Take a picture of your pet and complete the sentence “I love my Veterinary Nurse because…..”

We are asking pet owners to send their photo and quote to us at, and also post on their own social media pages too, with the appropriate hashtags;  #planetRVN#VNAM2021 and #whatVNsdo. Please read the competition rules before entering.
