Jurox, Inc. fully supports the Veterinary Nurse Initiative (VNI) and the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA). We represent and elevate the veterinary technician’s importance in providing high quality patient care, client communication, and client education as well as the
promotion of public health and advancements in scientific knowledge.
Jurox, Inc. fully supports the goals of the VNI in uniting the profession under a single title with consistent credential standards and associated scope of practice that is protected to those that meet the educational path set forth as a priority for the future of the profession. We feel this standardization will
increase public awareness of our service to society not just with the household pet but within food production animals, agriculture, infectious disease, bio-security, military service, medical advancements and research. While there is clear evidence the presence of credentialed veterinary technicians have a
positive impact on patient care and the success of veterinary practices, there is minimal public and professional understanding of the profession which contributes to current challenges in the profession today. Joining the national call for standardization and elevation of the profession will raise the intrinsic
value of the credential and benefit the individuals in the field by further raising the awareness within the profession and public expectations of the knowledge, expertise, and passion required for high quality veterinary care.
Through Think Anesthesia®, Jurox Inc.’s educational initiative for veterinary professionals and innovative products, we strive to support this initiative through informative continued education opportunities and providing quality products to support best practices and the highest standard of care. It is essential that the veterinary medical profession strives to meet the ever increasing professional and economic challenges while continuing to serve the needs of the public. A single, unified title and a standardized credential of Registered Veterinary Nurses throughout the nation will better align public perceptions of the role of the veterinary nurse and elevate standards met by each credentialed individual. Achievement of these goals will assure the highest quality of care to patients and animal owners, improve public relations, promote the use of veterinary services, and enhance the sustainability of the veterinary profession.
