This was the first VN Futures meeting of this BVNA year and my first meeting as Chair and it was a really exciting meeting to start my tenure as we not only reflected on what had been achieved within the project so far, but also started to look to its future.
In the autumn VN Futures had held discussion forums at the BVNA ‘This is Us’ event, exploring some big questions about veterinary nursing and the feedback we gained was invaluable and will be used to shape the project going forward.
Within this meeting we discussed how the BVNA and the RCVS would continue to work together to progress the development of veterinary nursing; we also explored the options for being able to ‘get out there’ (albeit virtually to begin with) to interact with our profession and gain your insight into how you see the future of veterinary nursing. The engagement of the profession is crucial for this project, so watch this space!
We also welcomed my colleague Alex Taylor, BVNA’s Junior Vice-President, on to the Board at this meeting. I’ll let Alex introduce herself, but I know she will be a fantastic addition to the VN Futures Team.
