Nominations open for BVNA awards 2024
Nominations will be open until Wednesday, 31 July 2024.

Finalists will be invited to BVNA Congress and an Awards Ceremony.

The British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) has opened the nominations for its 2024 awards.

Nominations will remain open until Wednesday, 31 July 2024, for four veterinary nursing categories.

The association is inviting its members, as well as other registered veterinary nurses (RVNs) and student veterinary nurses (SVNs), to recognise the individuals who have inspired and supported others.

Among the awards open for nominations is the Veterinary Nursing Journal (VNJ) Writer of the Year Award. Open to BVNA members and non-members, the award celebrates articles which lead to interesting discussions, foster positive change, or improve clinical standards in practice.

The article must have been published in the VNJ between September 2023 and July 2024.

The RVN Champion of the Year, RVN Mentor of the Year and SVN of the Year awards are only open to members of the BVNA.

RVN Champion of the Year will be awarded to an RVN who has proactively raised awareness for the RVN title. Eligible candidates will have promoted the importance of protecting the title, the need for legislative reform and the skills that RVNs offer.

The winner of RVN Mentor of the Year will have supported a colleague with their professional development and progression as a veterinary nurse. This can be in a leadership capacity, in an area of clinical practice, or a role outside of practice.

Finally, SVN of the Year will recognise a student who has not only undertaken their training, but also raised awareness for RVNs and supported their fellow students.

Three finalists from each category will be invited to attend BVNA Congress on Saturday, 12 October 2024, as well as the evening Dinner Dance and Awards Ceremony.

Lyndsay Hughes, BVNA president, said: ““We are incredibly excited to announce this year’s four award categories, and our annual Awards Ceremony at BVNA Congress is a real highlight for all at BVNA.

“It provides a fantastic opportunity to spotlight and celebrate the inspiring work that individuals do, and the impact our members have on the wider profession. Simply being put forwards for an award also provides a real sense of recognition to all of our nominees.”
