‘What an awards ceremony we had at the BVNA Dinner Dance 2021. It was incredible to share some of the finalists videos – they were full of passion and inspiration. Congratulations to all of our nominees for the BVNA Awards, it really was truly a demonstration of veterinary nurses championing veterinary nurses, but an even bigger congratulations to our Awards Winners, for the BVNA Awards, but also the Hills Awards and the Blue Cross Vet Nurse of the year award. Be proud, I really am – to be part of such an amazing profession that has an amazing supportive community. Well done all!’
