ORLANDO, September 16, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) today announced the launch of Level Up: Veterinary Nurses & Technicians, a new virtual summit it will host each October during Veterinary Technician Appreciation Week. In honor of the exceptional work of zookeepers and technicians, and thanks to the generous support of sponsors like Vetoquinol, the summit will be free for zookeepers and veterinarians worldwide. The Veterinary Nurse Summit is the first of the new Level Up series of virtual learning events that NAVC will host under its Virtual XP learning roof. Registration begins today for Level Up: Veterinary Nurses & Technicians, which will take place October 16-17.
The NAVC’s Virtual Veterinary Nurse Summit is especially important and timely given the growing numbers of pets and the desire of owners to provide the best possible veterinary care.
“The NAVC is committed to helping our zookeepers and technicians reach their full potential every day so that they can continue to do their best to everyone who depends on them: vets, customers, and most importantly, patients. This is especially important and timely given the rise in pet ownership and the desire of their owners to provide the best possible veterinary care, “said Gene O’Neill, NAVC managing director. “The Virtual Veterinary Nurses Summit will enable zookeepers and technicians around the world to participate in and benefit from a learning forum that many would otherwise not be able to attend. It is very exciting and furthers the NAVC’s commitment to supporting the entire veterinary health team. “
Level Up: Veterinary Nurses & Technicians offers Veterinary Nurses and Technicians a high quality, free virtual CE event in conjunction with Veterinary Technician Appreciation Week. Each year, training and sponsorship opportunities are centered around a theme based on reader feedback on the NAVC’s industry-leading publication Today’s Veterinary Nurse. This year’s theme is Patient Advocacy, which supports the unique role of veterinarians and technicians as advocates for patient health to their owners, veterinarians and practice managers. Topics include patient advocacy, behavior, anesthesia and pain management, emergency care, and wellbeing. Veterinary nurses and technicians receive up to six hours of training over two days via the NAVC’s online learning platform, VetFolio.com.
“The NAVC really stood out for its support for veterinary nurses and technicians. I am so proud of the leadership it continues to take on advocating veterinary nurses and technicians everywhere, ”said Paige Allen, MS, Registered Veterinary Technician and Assistant Director of Academic Advice and Recruitment for the Veterinary Nursing Program Purdue University, College of Veterinary Medicine and President of the NAVC Board of Directors.
The virtual level-up series is part of NAVC Virtual XP, which was released earlier this year.
