It was started by the VNCA- Veterinary Nurses Council of Australia. The purpose of this day is to raise the awareness about vet nurses and to recognize and appreciate their contributions. They play a very important role in taking care of our pets and we should be forever grateful for that!
It is mostly celebrated in Australia, however more and more countries start the trend.
It is very important to educate the general public on the role of the vet nurses and how much they benefit every vet team. They are there to help the vets, to take care of your pet, to assist the doctors in difficult procedures and much more!
If you want to celebrate it and appreciate your nurses, you can decorate your clinic with posters and banners for this day. It is a good idea to have an open day at your clinic and bring Vet Nurse day to attention to your clients. Maybe even treat your nurses with a small gift of appreciation!
Do you celebrate Vet Nurses Day in your country? If yes, what do you do?
