Still Need CE?
We only have about 6 weeks left in 2016. How did it get to be the end of the year already? For those of you who renew your licenses by December 31, check your CE credits to make sure you have enough for the renewal period. VSPN CE still has a couple of courses open for enrollment before the end of the year, and all CE certificates of participation for 2016 courses will be issued before December 31.

The Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) testing window opened this week. VSPN would like to wish all candidates sitting for the exam the best of luck! Remember to update your profile with your new credentials via MyVSPN!

Heads up – next week the VSPN This Week newsletter will be emailed late Wednesday afternoon. The VIN/VSPN offices are closed Thursday and Friday next week for the US Thanksgiving holiday so the newsletter will need to go out a littler earlier than usual.

Say NO to Sago!

Radiology Positioning for Exotics
Radiographing exotics can be a true challenge! Many clinics have limited opportunities to take radiographs of exotic species. This single real time session VSPN CE course instructed by Jody Nugent-Deal, RVT, VTS (Anesthesia/Analgesia, Exotic Companion Animal) will review basic equipment, sedation and anesthetic techniques, correct positioning, and special modalities for common exotic companion species. Basic radiologic principles will not be covered in this course. Enroll today!
