Sophie Venables
PRP Manager
Linnaeus

Sophie completed her degree in Veterinary Nursing and Bioveterinary Science at the University of Bristol in 2014. Following this she worked in a variety of clinical settings to cover primary care, charity and most recently, referral work as a Soft Tissue RVN at Wear Referrals. Throughout these roles, she has always had a passion for education and development of Veterinary Nurses which led her to split her time equally between clinical work and teaching as a Veterinary Nursing Clinical Demonstrator at University of Bristol. Sophie joined Linnaeus as a Veterinary Nursing Post Registration Programme (PRP) Manager in 2020. The PRP aims to provide newly qualified RVNs with the tools to enhance their clinical skills and professional behaviours to ensure a sustainable, lifelong career in referral nursing. Within this role she supports 0-12month post registration RVNs as they begin their career in referral nursing and provides teaching on a variety of professional skills such as handover, communication and mentoring alongside supporting the RVNs clinical development.
