The Veterinary Nurse is a new clinical, professional and educational journal for veterinary nurses around the world who wish to enhance their practice and deepen their understanding of veterinary nursing.
Veterinary nursing is a relatively young profession, but one that in recent years has displayed increasing professionalisation and expanding role boundaries. Veterinary nurses not only play a key role in preventative health care and animal welfare, but also carry out diagnostic tests and procedures, medical treatments and minor surgical procedures under the direction of the veterinary surgeon.
Wherever they work - in general practice, a specialist centre, education or industry - veterinary nurses draw on their experiences and knowledge to identify the nursing interventions each patient requires. However, they currently do not have a specific veterinary nursing research base to qualify the nursing decisions they make.
The Veterinary Nurse aims to change this. Publishing high quality, peer-reviewed content on a full range of areas relevant to veterinary nurses, from clinical issues and pharmacology, to management and professional issues, the journal will also provide nurses with an opportunity to develop and disseminate their own research.
Written by veterinary nurses for veterinary nurses, The Veterinary Nurse will provide an opportunity for veterinary nurses to discuss issues relevant to them, while learning directly from one another.
