USDA-APHIS Extends NVAP Accreditation Deadline for Vets Stymied by Federal Shutdown

We have a bit of good news to report as a follow-up to the recent federal government shutdown. If you’re a National Veterinary Accreditation Program-accredited veterinarian whose accreditation needed to be renewed between Oct. 1 and Oct. 17, while the federal government was shut down, your renewal date has been reset automatically to Oct. 31. 

That means you’ll have access to all of the online CE modules for renewal until the end of the month. 

Established in 1921, the NVAP is designed to let private-practice veterinarians assist federal veterinarians in controlling animal diseases. Many states and countries will only accept certificates of veterinary inspection signed by accredited veterinarians. If you’re not yet NVAP accredited, you can learn more about the program and find out how to earn accreditation on the USDA-APHIS website.
