RVN Helen Tottey talks about the importance of valuing the professional skills of veterinary nurses in this CPD podcast produced by the Vet Nurse Times.
She discusses the concerns some practices and nurses have that owners would be less likely to return if they were charged for nurse consultations.
However, a survey showed that provided owners understood the value that they were getting, more than 88% of were willing to pay for nurse time.
How do we promote nurse skills and services to clients, and calculate what their time should be worth? What sort of clinics should nurses be charging for? Should the same clinic with a vet be priced differently?
