The BVNA and Hill’s have once again joined forces to support the NI Vet Nurse of the Year award. The event is now in its fourth year and celebrates exceptional individuals who make significant contributions within the community and towards the care of their patients.

This year colleagues in practices and clients from across Northern Ireland are being encouraged to once again nominate their favourite nurses before the deadline of the 28th March. The 2010 winners received multiple nominations, from both colleagues and clients and were praised for many aspects of their work including combining weight management clinics with fund raising for animal charities, ‘giving that little bit of extra TLC’, ‘lifting the spirits in the workplace’ and support for clients making difficult decisions. There were a record number of entries in 2010 and this year practices are expected to rise to the challenge and lift entries even more. Last year Paula Quinn RVN MBVNA, Northern Ireland Regional Co-ordinator of the BVNA, said the awards “should make us all proud to be part of such a wonderful and rewarding profession.” For the winners there are cash awards of up to £250 as well as the prestige that comes from winning Northern Ireland’s top veterinary nursing award. Susie Turner, Hill’s Territory Manager, is calling for all members of the practice team to identify the people who have made a special effort and improved the wellbeing of animals, “A nomination alone can mean so much, so please take a little time out of your day to recognise a deserving individual in your practice.” Practices can obtain nomination forms from their Hill’s Territory Manager or by calling Hill’s customer services on 0800 282438.
