Well done Jenny!

Jenny Comont has just received confirmation of her RCVS Veterinary Nursing Registration after passing her final exams in January. Jenny has discarded her stripy greens for full bottle green uniform - hurrah! This is obviously a great day for Jenny but also for the hospital as Jenny is our first SVN through the apprenticeship program in association with College of Animal Welfare.
