Veterinary Nursing Stethoscope Dinner Marks Start of Clinical Education
Students in the Purdue Veterinary Nursing Program’s Class of 2022 were in the spotlight at the 8th annual Veterinary Nursing Stethoscope Dinner August 21 in the Purdue Memorial Union. Co-sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and Patterson Veterinary, the dinner gave the second-year veterinary nursing students a chance to enjoy a meal together and receive complimentary stethoscopes to celebrate the start of the clinical phase of their veterinary nursing education.
After welcoming remarks from Dr. Bianca Zenor, director of the Veterinary Nursing Program, and Dean Willie Reed, the students heard from Dr. Andrew Clark of Boehringer Ingelheim and Rob Fulkerson of Patterson Veterinary, who wished the students well on their journey to becoming veterinary nurses. As they received their stethoscopes, each student also signed the Veterinary Technician Code of Ethics, which gives veterinary nurses guidance for carrying out their professional duties.
