The 2017 SPVS Salary Survey shows an increase in wages across practice types

The Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS) profession-wide salary survey, which was answered by 630 veterinary nurses discovered that in small animal practices, the medium salary for a veterinary nurse up to five years qualified has increased from £19,100 in 2015, to £20,673. For nurses qualified six or more years, the median salary has also increased from £23,000 in 2015, to £25,800.

The survey has also uncovered the better working benefits for vets in comparison to veterinary nurses, for example, 85.9% of vets reported that they receive paid CPD, compared to only 75.2% of veterinary nurses.

The full survey results are available to SPVS  and British Veterinary Nursing Association members.
