All chapters have been revised in line with changes in legislation and regulation but also theoretical and practical aspects. Greater emphasis on the veterinary practice structure including the role of corporate businesses and use of social media bring this edition fully up to date.

Nicola is a winner of several awards including the Blue Cross/BVNA Veterinary Nurse of the Year and the Barbara Cooper / CAW Professional Development Award for outstanding service to the veterinary nursing profession.
