CVS Nursing announces new partnership with the Royal Veterinary College

23rd August 2018

CVS Nursing is proud to announce an exciting new partnership with the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), University of London to deliver accredited CPD for nurses.

CVS Director of Nursing Belinda Andrews-Jones has worked with the RVC to develop a new “Nursing Excellence Course”. The new Nursing excellence course will provide access to the fantastic clinical nursing modular CPD, run by the RVC. This will provide an accredited certificate in a particular subject area. These modules are run entirely online over six weeks and use a blended/deep learning approach to deliver high quality content, which encourages learners to think critically about their work, not to just engage in box-ticking CPD hours.

At the end of the module, nurses will gain up to 18 CPD hours and a certificate from the University of London, Royal Veterinary College.

Belinda Andrews-Jones commented: “At CVS we are committed to developing our people and believe that their development should be at the heart of our organisation. Nurses play an integral part of delivering high clinical standards to our patients and as such, we believe the creation of the Nursing Excellence Course in partnership with Royal Veterinary College, University of London will deliver just that.”

CVS has been proactively developing its learning and development programme and has recently announced the appointment of a new Director of Veterinary Post Graduate Studies as part of its commitment to continued learning and excellence.

Belinda was appointed to the RCVS VN Council in July having had a 27 year career in veterinary nursing.
