NAVTA (The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America) has started an initiative to make “RVT – Registered Veterinary Nurse” the standard credential in the United States veterinary technician profession. This battle is now supported by Midmark Corp. too.

NAVTA is fighting this battle with the purpose to create higher care standard and to unite under one credential all the current titles: RVT (registered veterinary technician), LVT (licensed veterinary technician), CVT (certified veterinary technician), and LVMT (licensed veterinary medical technician).

They believe that this will open the possibilities for veterinary nurses to work with no problems outside the state where they got their credentials, and to get the recognition that one certification is recognized everywhere.

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America is actively seeking more insights and more feedback from vet techs and vet nurses throughout the country in order to make sure that the new standard will meet all private credential levels.
