(SP5C) The Veterinary Nurse Initiative: What Should You Know?

Tuesday, March 6
4:00 PM - 4:50 PM
MBCC, South Seas J, Level 3

CE Credits: 1

Sponsored By: 

Uniting our profession under a single title, establishing standardized credentialing requirements and consistent scope of practice, and instating title protection is the goals of the veterinary nurse initiative. As publishers change terminology, organizations endorse the initiative, and legislative action is taken in some states, it is important for veterinary technicians to be updated on the effort. The first hour will provide an overview on the effort, and the second hour will focus on answering specific questions that are commonly asked.

Kenichiro Yagi

ICU Manager, Blood Bank Manager
Adobe Animal Hospital

Over the 17 years in practice, Ken has discovered and refined his role as a veterinary technician by promoting compassionate and progressive care for the patients and their family. He obtained his VTS certification in emergency and critical care as well as small animal internal medicine. He now practices at Adobe Animal Hospital as an ICU Manager and Blood Bank Manager. Ken’s role has progressed from directly caring for patients to providing an environment for others to do the same.

Ken works to encourage further recognition of the vital role of the veterinary nurses and technicians through work with organizations such as the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, and serving as a board member of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society, the Academy of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Technicians, and the Veterinary Innovation Council. He pursues the goal by showing the value of the profession’s perspective in veterinary medicine.

Ken invites everyone to ask “Why?” to understand the “What” and “How” of our field, and to constantly pursue new limits as veterinary professionals and individuals.
