Please note this advice is aimed at students of The College of Animal Welfare. Students studying at other training providers are advised to contact them directly if they have any questions or concerns regarding VN registration.
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) have recently made some changes to the process by which student veterinary nurses apply to join the RCVS Register of Veterinary Nurses.
Under the new process, awarding bodies will inform the RCVS directly when they issue a veterinary nursing qualification to a student. Once the RCVS receive this information they will then email the student directly within one week, providing them with a link to a new online portal. The student will then be required to upload their evidence of having completed the required 2,990 hours of practical training.
During this period of transition, once students receive their email from the RCVS they will need to contact us for a copy of their record of training and then upload it to the online portal to complete the registration process. If you have any questions please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org / 01480 422060.
