A Registered Veterinary Nurse has been suspended from the Register for two months for failing to provide CPD records.

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Veterinary Nurse Disciplinary Committee has suspended a veterinary nurse from the Register for two months after she failed to respond to repeated requests from the RCVS to provide her continuing professional development (CPD) records.

The Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Nurses states that all members of the profession are expected to undertake at least 45 hours of CPD over a rolling three-year period in order to keep their professional skills and competencies up-to-date, that these CPD records should be provided upon request and that members of the profession must comply with reasonable requests from the RCVS.
