Putting Nurses In The Prize Winning Driving Seat

Vet nurses around the UK and Ireland change the lives of their patients, clients and colleagues every single day. In recognition of this, Hill’s Pet Nutrition is once again running Drive Nutrition in 2013 – a competition that gives something back to vet nurses whilst raising awareness about the importance of good nutrition for small animals. Nurses can log on, get involved and be in with a chance of winning thousands of great prizes, including the top prize – a brand new smart car! All nurses need to do is log on at http://drivenutrition.hillsvet.co.uk or http://drivenutrition.hillsvet.ie (if not already registered on the Hill’s Vet Professional Portal, visit www.hillsvet.co.uk or www.hillsvet.ie first) and get stuck in to accelerate their chances of winning.

After the huge success of last year, Drive Nutrition 2013 has a brand new look and features some fun new games, which along with quizzes, challenges and tasks to complete, provide nurses with the opportunity to collect points. Each point equates to one entry into the grand prize draw to win the fantastic smart car, due to be presented to its new owner at BVNA congress 2013. There are also weekly win prizes which include iPad Mini’s, Kindle Fires, iPod docks and copies of “The Consulting Veterinary Nurse” textbook. In case that wasn’t enough, every couple of months, Hill’s will ask nurses to e-mail in their current points total and then the race is on as there are thousands of gifts available for the first nurses that respond.  Specifically chosen to help make those everyday work tasks a little easier for nurses, these gifts include things like calculators and watches. This and regular news and updates makes it worthwhile keeping a close eye on the Drive Nutrition website.

With the competition running until the end of November, there are literally thousands of chances for nurses to receive the thank-you that they deserve and win big. Drive Nutrition also encourages everyone to remember the importance of a nutritional recommendation for every pet, in every consultation.

To turn the ignition on their chances of winning, nurses can register for Drive Nutrition by visiting http://drivenutrition.hillsvet.co.uk or http://drivenutrition.hillsvet.ie. After that, it’s simply a case of putting the pedal to the metal to rack up those points and see who will make it to the chequered flag first. Good luck everyone!
