Veterinary Nurse Training Online is a website developed by The Bella Moss Foundation. It offers information for veterinary nurses and other practice staff on veterinary issues.

This module focuses on MRSA and infection control.

On this website you will find information on MRSA, an infection that is increasingly affecting companion animals; information on preventing hospital-acquired infection and a photographic tour of a veterinary practice showing situations that are commonly experienced by veterinary staff.

You will also have an opportunity to obtain a Certificate of Achievement by taking a multiple-choice questionnaire on the knowledge you have gained. Follow the links on this page to the areas that you wish to visit.

Veterinary Nurse Training Online is grateful for the support of the College of Animal Welfare which developed the questionnaire; staff at the Royal Veterinary College who helped in the development of the clinical content, and Petplan Charitable Trust, which has provided sponsorship for the development and maintenance of the module. Photographic services provided by Phillip Meech.

Veterinary Nurse Training Online is a division of The Bella Moss Foundation, a charity offering information and support on MRSA to pet owners and providing Continuing Professional Development to veterinary staff.

This Veterinary Nurse Training Online website is dedicated to the memory of Nick Mills who contributed greatly to the success of this training module on MRSA.
