If you are still in need of CE credits for renewal, take a look at the courses VIN and VSPN CE have to offer through the end of this year. Topics include a three part series on communication and conflict, physical rehabilitation, ECG’s, urinalysis, radiology, reptile anesthesia and toxicology. This list is definitely not all inclusive.
