About the course

Are you a head nurse or practice manager? Or perhaps you’re aspiring to become a head nurse in the future? If so, Head Nurse Congress is the event for you!

Back by popular demand, this two day event, sponsored by the Veterinary Practice Management Association (VPMA), is set to cover some of the biggest issues facing veterinary practices today. Experienced speakers will guide you through staff well-being, recruitment, managing difficult situations, leadership and coaching skills, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and more!

Not only will Head Nurse Congress increase your confidence in your everyday leadership and management skills, it will provide 12 hours of evidenced Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Furthermore, due to the fantastic feedback we received about last year’s venue, we are returning to the wonderful Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa which has onsite accommodation for those looking to stay overnight. Delegates can receive a discounted room and evening meal rate. We look forward to seeing you there!
