What Our Clients Say

I enjoyed this introduction to nurse consulting so much, I would happily invest in the full price RVN Cons course. I think it would be really helpful in clinics that want to get nurse consulting off the ground, and add value to those already doing it. 

I found the module on legalities and Schedule 3 in relation to RVNs fantastic and informative. It set my mind at ease when it comes to consulting and knowing we are operating within our legal limits

I also liked the examples of the type of phrases and language we could use when detecting abnormalities and referring them to a vet in order to ensure that we don't get accused of ‘diagnosing’ something we shouldn't.

The module on confidence and self-doubt was also very helpful. I was able to identify my own self talk and how to deal with failure.
