Sophie Venables RVN BSc (Hons)

During my career I have worked as an RVN in a variety of clinical settings to cover primary care, charity and referral clinics. Throughout these roles, I have always had a passion for education and development of Veterinary Nurses.

Whilst working at Wear Referrals two days a week, I commuted to the University of Bristol three days a week to work as a Veterinary Nursing Clinical Demonstrator. Here I was involved in the design and implementation of veterinary nursing clinical rotations at Langford Small Animal Hospital. I was also responsible for supporting students during their six-month rotations.

I joined Linnaeus as one of two Veterinary Nursing Post Registration Programme Managers in January 2020. Within this role I support 0-12month post registration RVNs make their transition from student to specialist veterinary nurse.
