    Hi! I'm a new RN and I started my first nursing job in dermatology about 5 or 6 weeks ago! I wish there were more posts about derm nursing out there, but they seem to be few and far between!

    Hi late reply :/ . I think im still warming to the position, especially since I am a newly qualified. On top of that I never had any outpatients experience during my training so its all new. I still miss working on the wards especially in cardiac wards. However im definitely making the most of this experience, as I think dermatology is very interesting. I'm still trying to familarise myself with the different skin conditions and different treatment regimes as well.
    My work typically involves running each clinic, being on hand for any wound dressings, assisting in skin biopsies, taking BP/Height/Weight/BMI, urine & pregnancy testing.
    What kind of work do you do?

    I also work at a practice that does general derm/mohs/regular surgeries. We have 2 docs that both do mohs but one is leaving the practice soon.

    I'm in derm, too! Once or twice a week we do procedures (usually after a superficial biopsy and we need a wider margin, though lots of cysts lately). The daily is rooming patients, assisting with biopsies, managing records, pt phone calls, refill requests, isotretinoin (bleh!) and anything the doctor asks (love him!!)
