Petition on protecting the VN title closes with over 36,000 signatures

The RCVS petition asking the Government to protect the title ‘veterinary nurse’ has now closed, with over 36,000 people having supported the campaign

The petition was launched in August 2015 with the aim of getting the Government legally to protect ‘veterinary nurse’ so that only those professionals who have the relevant education and training and who are appropriately registered with the RCVS can refer to themselves as such, and to criminalise improper use of the term.

Within its first week the petition gathered over 10,000 signatures and, as the petition closed on Sunday 14 February 2016, some 36,862 people from across the UK had signed it.
