A request for information from vets on Approved Training and Assessment Centres for veterinary nursing has resulted in information on 50 places that are likely to be lost, or have been lost. Busy vets are concerned about the paperwork and input that these places involve. There is concern that training of vet nurses could be affected, with fewer nurses being trained. The Royal College needs to accept that the S/NVQ system is leading to a reduction in places.
