New Look
VSPN still has a few areas that are not behind members’ security. When you go to the message boards, the VSPN Notebook, any Rounds room or the VSPN Library, you are at that time asked to login. The login page has a new look which is now mobile friendly.

The VIN Geeks are working on a new main VSPN page which will still be public, but will have a login area that will then take you to our community. When we roll this out, we hope that most areas in VSPN will be mobile friendly. It is going to take additional development time to move our Unity classrooms to a mobile friendly environment, but the VIN Geeks are working hard on it!

Anesthesia for the Reptile Patient
