The BSAVA Manual of Advanced Veterinary Nursing forms part of the BSAVA Manuals of Veterinary Nursing series (edited by Gill Simpson) is aimed at veterinary nurses who wish to extend their knowledge and skills with information at a level beyond the VN qualification. A problem-based approach to internal medicine is introduced, with techniques for nursing major surgical and critical cases, and the management of a critical care unit. Advanced laboratory and radiography chapters cover techniques and interpretation, including newer imaging techniques. To cater for recent developments, chapters are included on equine nursing and practice management. There is also a section on exotic and wildlife nursing. Although it is not intended to be a comprehensive textbook, this manual will be helpful as an introduction and source of further information for the Diplomas in Advanced Veterinary Nursing.
