Veterinary Care Elite validates and recognizes the regulated veterinary technicians who have met the profession's highest standards as set by the AAVSB's Member Boards. The AAVSB will do that by verifying their education, regulation credentials, and professional conduct, affirming its belief that a robust and efficient regulatory process will support and advance the veterinary profession.

The American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) is pleased to announce the winner of the inaugural Veterinary Technician National Examination Celebrating Diversity Award is Tiana Smith, a graduating Veterinary Technology senior from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The AAVSB is thrilled to introduce this award which is to be given to a veterinary technician or nursing student from an AVMA-CVTEA or CVMA accredited veterinary technology or nursing program.
