FAO: Vet nursing diploma students – Submitting Applications for Entry onto the Register of VNs

| 0 comments

Please note the college process in place for submitting applications for entry onto the VN Register is changing…

Going forward, all veterinary nursing diploma students will need to submit their Application to Register to us, to be reviewed and forwarded to the RCVS with the required evidence of training.

If you are a non-employed student, the process has not changed. We will collate your Records of Training from your time in placement based on the registers submitted. You will need to send us your Application to Register.

If you are an employed student, you will need to send us your Application to Register, as well as your completed Records of Training from employment, signed off by the Practice Principal.

If you have spent time in both employed and non-employed training, you will need to send us your Application to Register, and your completed Records of Training from periods of employment only, signed off by the Practice Principal.  We will collate your Records of Training from your time in placement.

Before sending us your documentation, you should complete and sign your Application to Register, and provide your payment details. The total hours spent both in college and in practice should be left blank, as this will be completed by the college; however you should ensure you have accumulated enough training time to register prior to submission. You will be notified once we have received your documentation, and when your application has been sent to the RCVS.

The outlined change has been made in an effort to minimise issues which should be resolved before documentation arrives with the RCVS. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Ruth Franklin on rfranklin@caw.ac.uk or 01480 422060.
