Introduction to Veterinary Nurse Consulting Course
I found the first module on legalities and Schedule 3 in relation to RVN fantastic and informative. This information is rarely laid out concisely and in a way that is clearly relevant to what we do as nurses, leaving us feeling nervous to provide services because we aren’t sure what we can or can’t do. I found this information was explained very well and I believe it is of significant value to all nurses. It set my mind at ease when it comes to consulting and knowing we are operating within our legal limits
I found the information about the structure of a consultation very useful. 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
I enjoyed the intro so much, I would happily invest in the full price RVN Cons course. I think this course would be really helpful in our clinics that want to get nurse consulting off the ground, and add value to those already doing it. I would have liked a little more information on how to charge clients for our services as nurses, but I believe this is covered more in depth in the paid course?
