Scholarship announced in memory of Louise O’Dwyer
Louise O'Dwyer was a highly respected and awarded veterinary nurse.

Veterinary nurses urged to apply to Improve International’s Emergency and Critical Care programme.

Veterinary nurses with a passion for Emergency and Clinical Care (ECC) are being urged to apply for a scholarship on Improve International’s (Programme) in Emergency and Critical Care for Veterinary Nurses.

The opportunity is being offered in memory of internationally-renowned veterinary nurse Louise O’ Dwyer who died last year, and comes during Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month 2020 (May).

Louise O’Dwyer was a highly respected and awarded veterinary nurse, recognised both in the UK and across the globe. She contributed to publications and lectures on all aspects of anaesthesia and infection control and was passionate about ECC.

She used this passion to inspire her colleagues, lecturing not only on the NCert ECC programme, which she helped to design but also lectured on other Improve nursing courses and at congresses around the world.

The course starts in October 2020 and the successful applicant will have the full cost of the programme covered, along with the examination fee for the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies.

The successful applicant will also receive a copy of the textbook textbook ‘Practical Emergency and Critical Care Veterinary Nursing,’ written by Ms O’Dwyer with Dr Paul Aldridge.

To apply for the scholarship, visit Improve International’s website. The closing date is 6 July 2020, with the successful applicant announced on 24 July 2020.
