Title Change - Veterinary Technician Becomes Veterinary Nurse

In response to a request made in June 2018, the College of Veterinary Medicine and Human Capital Services at Kansas State University have approved a formal job title change from veterinary technician to veterinary nurse effective throughout the college as of Oct. 21.

In 2016, the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, or NAVTA, focused their efforts on researching and pursuing legislation in all 50 states to seek unification under the title of registered veterinary nurse. Veterinary nurses aim to have greater public awareness and increased job mobility by ultimately creating national credentialing standards and to increase the intrinsic value of veterinary medicine.
