Celebrate!
Many veterinary technology programs are holding graduation ceremonies this month. VSPN would like to congratulate all of our student members that are graduating and wish them luck on the national board examination. It is an exciting but nerve wracking time for new grads! They celebrate in finishing their program, but this also creates anxiety before taking the boards and trying to find the right clinic to work at. Let’s help them celebrate the moment and be proud of all of the new technicians entering the field. Embrace these new technicians and give them support!
