Cedar Grove Vets
Nursing Care

Cedar Grove Veterinary Clinic are extremely proud of the nursing team that work independantly and assist the vets taking care of your pets. We would like to reassure you that our staff are trained to the highest standard, and our qualified nurses are regulated by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is responsible for overseeing the education of UK veterinary nursing students; the registration (and, pre-2003, the listing) of UK veterinary nurses; and, the fitness to practise (conduct, health and performance) of registered veterinary nurses (RVNs).

Only those appropriately registered with the RCVS have the right to practise veterinary nursing in the UK.

The RCVS regulates the veterinary nursing profession through the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966, the Royal Charter and the Veterinary Nursing Rules to protect the public interest and to safeguard animal health and welfare.

 

Veterinary nurses seek to ensure the health and welfare of animals committed to their care and to fulfil their professional responsibilities, by maintaining five principles of practice:

  1. Professional competence
  2. Honesty and integrity
  3. Independence and impartiality
  4. Client confidentiality and trust
  5. Professional Accountability
