Central Qualifications award first Bicton Veterinary students with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing Students from Bicton College in Devon have recently been awarded the CQ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (DipVN). âWe are thrilled that the first of our Bicton College's CQ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing students will now be able to enter directly on to the RCVS register, commented Head of Bicton Veterinary Centre, Janet Litten. They have demonstrated that they deserve such a position through successfully meeting the professional and rigorous standards set by CQ. The achievements of Bicton College students also mark the first time that veterinary nurses qualifying through the further education vocational route will have two sets of post-nominal letters after their names; DipVN official post-nominals of those who have achieved the CQ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing and RVN on entry to the RCVS register. The DipVN post-nominal letters have been selected by CQ to recognise candidates' high level of achievement. In order to complete the CQ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing, a student must achieve a pass on all CQ assignments and examinations for all units covered by the qualification, with no compensation between units. Furthermore, competence in 378 separately identified practical tasks is to be attained, recorded and verified, and final Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) passed. âWe are delighted with the achievements of all students and wish them successful careers as qualified veterinary nurses, commented Jacqui Garrett, Director of Central Qualifications. The CQ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing has been developed to produce competent veterinary nurses and we hope to continue to develop the qualification to reflect the needs of practices and the animals entrusted in their care. Qualifying students are now able to use the DipVN post-nominal letters, which recognise the significant achievements of those gaining the qualification.
