Welcome to the VSPN (Veterinary Support Personnel Network) Nerdbook!

In response to veterinary support staff seeking a handbook of usable, quick information for use in every day practice, the Veterinary Support Personnel Network proudly unveils the first edition of the VSPN Nerdbook.

The unique aspect of this nerdbook is that it is online and will be updated and amended to ensure it reflects the most current information in the profession periodically, therefore, never becoming a stale or dated resource. Also, it is a book YOU can participate in. We want this to be a usable resource to all of our VSPN members, so we want to hear from you about what you want included. All areas of the hospital will eventually be included.

Printing instructions:

To personalize your Nerdbook:
1. Copy and paste the information you want into a word document.
2. Highlight and change the text style or size to your liking
3. Print it out and custom fit for your Nerdbook
1. Click on PRINT on the page you want and print it out to a laser printer on 8 1/2" x 11" paper
2. Three hole punch and put in a standard notebook or cut and paste what you want onto a blank piece of paper and put that in a note book

The documents have been proofread several times by specialists and instructors in each area, however, if you find a typo or inaccurate information, please email directly with your name, the topic, page number, and both the inaccurate and correct information so we may verify it and update it on the site.

We have future editions planned covering many more topics, but will continue to update and keep current the information posted herein, to make this the best resource available to you!

Thank you for being a part of VSPN!
