Nurse Clinics – Putting your ideas into practice

Nurse clinics are an integral part of today’s modern vet practice. They can achieve so much for our patients, our clients, and our practices – but how do we ensure they’re as effective as they can be?

Nurse Clinics are also often under-attended by clients, so it’s important to ensure clients are aware of the service you are offering, and the benefits for them and their pets – but how can this be achieved?

This module will enable you to create clear ideas for planning, implementing, developing and promoting nurse clinics within practice, and is ideal for those who wish to start running nurse clinics in their practice, or those who are already running nursing consultations and just want wish to expand on this area.

The course offers opportunity to discuss ideas, experiences and problems with others; and will provide information, motivation and support and to enable you to set up clinics with confidence and success.
