The College of Animal Welfare is delighted to announce that Head Nurse Congress, sponsored by the Veterinary Practice Management Association (VPMA), is back from 19-20 May 2018!

Returning to the wonderful Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa in Northamptonshire, this year’s congress includes lectures on staff well-being, recruitment, managing difficult situations, leadership and coaching skills, Neuro-Linguistic Programming – and much more! Not only will Head Nurse Congress increase your confidence in your everyday leadership and management skills, it will provide 12 hours of evidenced Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
