WHAT IS A BILL?

HOW CAN I HELP?

The most important thing you can do right now is to help with our grassroots campaign by writing and calling our TN representatives and senators.  NAVTA and our lobbyists have provided us with scripts for our phone calls and emails. All you have to do is insert your name or other personal information in the blanks and let your opinion be heard.

Your support right now is very important for the veterinary technician profession.  The name change to Registered Veterinary Nurse is a long over due acknowledgement we have been needing to boost our profession.  Implementing this name change is service to ourselves and the public.  With this small change, we can further elevate our status as well as educate and protect the public from ambiguous titles that can easily be explained by " I am your pet's veterinary nurse".
