What is VN Futures?

VN Futures is an ongoing project that aims to ensure that veterinary nursing is a vibrant, rewarding and sustainable profession – now and into the future.

Driven by passionate members of the profession, the project seeks to visualise and address the challenges veterinary nursing is likely to face over the coming years – tackling how best to respond to these issues whilst looking forward to a dynamic VN profession.

The project is guided by the VN Futures Action Plan, launched at the Vet Futures Summit in July 2016.

The VN Futures is a joint initiative from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA). The initiative runs in parallel to the Vet Futures Project.
