Everyone has heard the veterinary field discussing how vital nursing care team members are and that we must focus on making sure they feel valued. That they must be recognized for their education and training to be better utilized for the critical role they play. So why is it that members of the profession are being paid barely at minimum wage?
At VEG, we're flipping this dialogue and paying our team members what they deserve. We are placing emphasis on growth, credentialing, and certification as we reimagine the field of veterinary nursing. And, we're only getting started.
