The Accreditation Committee for Veterinary Nurse Education (ACOVENE) is looking to widen its pool of visitors for accreditation and quality monitoring audits of ACOVENE accredited schools.

Accreditation and re-accreditation audits usually involve around 3-4 days’ worth of preparation time along with a two day visit to the veterinary nursing school being accredited and compilation of the site visit report.  Quality monitoring consists of a one day spot check of the school, compilation of the visit report and involves very little preparation time.

ACOVENE provides full training, guidance and mentoring to all new visitors.  We also pay loss of earnings along with reasonable travel expenses.

If you are a veterinary nurse or veterinary surgeon interested in joining the visitor pool or would just like further information regarding this opportunity please contact Claire O’Leary the ACOVENE Secretariat at
