Is this course for me?

Are you ready to prepare your team and maximise the chance of a successful outcome for your patients?

This amazingly comprehensive-demand online course is suitable for all members of the clinical veterinary nursing team including RVN's, SVN's and ANA's.

The Pulse is a course designed for veterinary staff with the aim of equipping individuals with invaluable information regarding the physiology of cardiopulmonary arrest and the RECOVER Guidelines.

The course will take the learner through each of the 5 domains of the RECOVER Guidelines and include suggestions of how individual practices can improve their approaches to cardiopulmonary resuscitation attempts.

This course will prepare your team and maximise the chance of a successful outcome for your patients which becomes a vitally important component of successful treatment of patients in distress.

Several skill sets are involved in resuscitation, these include cognitive, technical, and behavioural skills.

To maximise the impact of these skills and their effect on resuscitation efforts, individuals must be able to work together in a coordinated and efficient manner.

How strong is YOUR team?

By completing this online course, you will improve your confidence, improve your team structure and become more dynamic, ensuring resuscitation efforts become more effective.

You will go from remembering and understanding information to applying, analysing, evaluating, and creating with it.

All our courses include small bitesize videos with an accompanying workbook, so you don't have to write a single word (unless you want an excuse to get your stationary out 😉)

Senior RVN CPD Speaker and Lecturer

Emma Annis Bsc (Hons), RVN PGCE VNCertECC

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2004 after completing my training at a very busy small animal hospital in Milton Keynes. Since then, I have worked in a variety of practices and nursed a vast array of species including; small animals, large animals, equines, zoo and exotic animals. During my time in practice, I have worked with many students as their clinical coach and really enjoyed watching each student blossom and qualify into superb veterinary nurses.

Prior to qualifying as a veterinary nurse, I undertook an honours degree in Animal Agriculture and a level 3 diploma in Equine Studies.

I worked in the veterinary industry for many years before moving into teaching. I have taught a variety of level 2 and level 3 courses in multiple further education settings. My subjects have been; Animal Management, Animal Nursing, Veterinary Care Assistant, Veterinary Care Support and Veterinary Nursing. I completed my PGCE and qualified as a lecturer in further education in 2015. From 2015 to present I have worked in a mixture of teaching and veterinary nursing roles. During this time, I became increasingly interested in emergency and critical care nursing and went on to complete my certificate in ECC with Vets Now. My interest for ECC nursing has continued since then and I truly believe the basis of it encompasses all aspects of veterinary nursing.

At the start of 2021 I set up my own business as a veterinary nursing tutor and plan to later add canine behaviour consultations to support individuals who wish to work on any behavioural concerns they have with their dogs. I’m currently studying an advanced diploma in canine behaviour.

My drive will always be to ensure every veterinary nurse feels empowered to give the very best they can to each and every patient they interact with. Empowerment comes from education and building knowledge and this in turn can, and often does lead to greater job satisfaction.
