Dear members of the veterinary community,

The current status of title protection for Veterinary Technicians in the United States varies depending on the state. Title protection is important to prevent misrepresentation of our profession by individuals that do not meet the credentialing requirements, and a lack of compliance and enforcement of title protection has been a commonly described concern within our profession.

The Title Protection Task Force of the Veterinary Nurse Initiative is tasked to survey the current state of title protection to create recommendations for the veterinary field to encourage the establishment of better title protection.

Please take this survey to provide information on the status of title protection and provide feedback on the topic.
