“Veterinary technicians, assistants, Client Service Representatives, and practice managers play such a vital role in our hospitals. The VND team is so proud to offer these amazing team members access to innovative and world-class programs and training to advance their career development and the veterinary profession as a whole.”
NVA has partnered with Penn Foster College to deliver their online, on-demand programs to NVA community team members. The AVMA Accredited Veterinary Technician and NAVTA-Approved Veterinary Assistant programs allow non-credentialed veterinary assistants and technicians to become credentialed through formal education programs with tuition support from NVA.
The Penn Foster College partnership offers something for every member of the support team:
Colby College Veterinary Nursing Program provides discounted tuition through NVA hospital sponsorship.
NVA proudly partners with Fear Free, an organization dedicated to preventing and alleviating fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them. Through our partnership, we can extend a generous discount for team members to become Fear Free® certified professionals and provide support for hospitals to become a Fear Free certified practice.
For veterinary technicians who desire to focus on a specialty or discipline of veterinary medicine, the VTS mentorship program offers monthly meetings and mentorship to support aspiring VTS candidates in over 16 veterinary technician specialties.
During the online monthly meetings, our veterinary technician specialists offer insights into their specialty to inspire others. The meetings are a great way to introduce new specialties to our technicians who many have not had exposure, offer support, and encourage others to pursue a specialty.
RECOVER Certified BLS and ALS Rescuers are prepared for the ultimate emergency through the knowledge and skills required to give their patients the best chance of survival. NVA is proud to support team members to become certified rescuers through discounted courses and in-person training.
We're excited to offer support and resources beyond traditional veterinary technician paths via ACT and CSR certification support and professional development including trainings on regular cadence and network-wide CSR collaboration.
NVA supports in-house development for veterinary nursing team members to gain knowledge, skill, and continuing education by partnering with the following online resources:
