Time: 8am – 4pm + Networking Drinks

Location: The Rydges Cronulla

We invite you to be a part of our upcoming Veterinary Nurse Conference — Emergency and Critical Care in General Practice. This event promises to be an enriching experience designed specifically for veterinary nurses, vet techs/assistants and practice managers who are dedicated to providing exceptional care to our furry friends, especially during critical situations.

This is a great opportunity to bring nurses together in a networking setting with peers and industry experts like yourselves, and we are excited to offer access to valuable resources and tools to support their practice.

With a full day of lectures, we will also discuss hands on emergency response skills to conclude the day including a tutorial lecture on CPR and Anaesthesia. Join VSOS for a fun day of engaging talks and workshops led by experienced veterinary professionals and network with the greater veterinary community.
