Veterinary Nurses

Vetlife is supporting veterinary nurses through  Vetlife Helpline and Vetlife Health Support.  Both of these support services are free, confidential and completely independent of any other veterinary organisations.

Although we are not currently able to offer financial assistance to veterinary nurses, we can refer you to other possible sources of support and fund professional debt and benefits advice.

Common challenges

We understand that many veterinary nurses struggle with the same stressors as veterinary surgeons and also have some unique challenges:

  • adapting to regulation
  • uncertainty about whether their practice and colleagues will be supportive
  • debt issues
  • stress while studying for the veterinary nurse qualification
  • concerns about their own mental health or that of a colleague
