In this episode of the Vet Tech Taproom, we discuss a recent article published in the December issue of Today’s Veterinary Business titled “5 Things You Didn’t Learn In School” by Sandy Walsh, RVT, CVPM, link available below. We discussed each of these 5 points and why they are important to veterinary technicians and nurses.
We also spent a lot of time discussing the proposed fee increase of RVT licensing in California. We urge all California RVT’s to write a letter in opposition to this massive fee increase. Below is a link to the California RVT association’s facebook post about the fee increase. You DO NOT have to be a resident of California, nor hold an RVT license in that state to have your opinion heard. It’s important to note that any letter must be sent to BOTH the CA VMB and the OAL (email and street addresses below).

We interviewed Liza Rudolph BAS, RVT, VTS (C/P, SAIM) for this latest episode of the Vet Tech Cafe. We discussed an article proposing to create a veterinary nursing associate (VNA). She gave us a peek into the training that she does at various veterinary clinics on the east coast. We also talked about QPR training, which is a really helpful tool in suicide prevention.
