Who is this course for?

Is this course for me?

It's fair to say that mental health is one of the most prevalent issues we have working in the veterinary industry.

But it can be hard to know how to handle this topic of conversation, you don't want to say or do the wrong thing. Maybe you are even scared to start that conversation yourself.

We are super delighted to be able to provide you with a course that can help you take that positive step in the right direction.

Join our tutor Emily as she guides you and helps give you the confidence to have these conversations.

During her time in clinical practice, she has learned that the most important thing you can do for yourself is to speak up.

Yes, this can seem daunting - but the more you do this, the more confident you begin to feel in communicating your feelings and needs.

Whether you want to learn more about the different mental illnesses, or the impact that mental health has on us and others, this course will provide you with the knowledge and tools to improve your mental health knowledge to look after yourself and others in practice.

The course price has been heavily discounted and subsidised already for you, so this course may assist as many people right now as possible. Therefore, the 25% off discount does not apply to this course enrolment.

Instructor Bio:

BSc (Hons) RVN & Founder of The Empowering RVN

Emily Holmes

I started my journey in the veterinary industry in 2013 when I embarked on my SVN journey, throughout this time I worked in both mixed and small animal practice. In 2017 I graduated with my BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing and moved away from my family home and began my RVN career. After 5 years of working in first opinion in 2018 I took the 'leap' and moved into the world of referral, during this time I have been able to advance my nursing skills beyond my own expectations and continue to challenge and develop my skills on a daily basis. During the beginning of my journey into referral I felt so overwhelmed and so I started my blog Sherlock the Vet Nurse which has allowed me to help myself and others get over that fear and overwhelm and move forward in confidence.
