Formed in 2016 after previously existing as the ZEVN Workshop since 2012, the Association of Zoo & Exotic Veterinary Nurses (AZEVN) is a not-for-profit association that is ran by Veterinary Nurses for Veterinary Nurses, and is focused solely around the Zoo & Exotic VN Sector.

The AZEVN has three main aims:-

  • To facilitate excellence through education for Zoo & Exotic Veterinary Nurses across the UK, whilst prioritising animal health and welfare.
  • To provide the highest level of current and professional education to RVN’s working with zoo species, exotics or wildlife through unique and affordable CPD opportunities.
  • To facilitate the exchange of information and networking between RVN’s to help promote and maintain the highest standard of veterinary nursing within Zoo & Exotic institutions.

The AZEVN is ran by an elected committee of volunteer RVN’s and please check out the AZEVN Committee for information on the current committee and how they work together to keep the AZEVN running throughout the year.

We hope you enjoy looking around the AZEVN Website and we would highly recommend taking a look at the AZEVN Events Page to check out our upcoming events to see how you can get involved.
