    Hi, I worked in dermatology for 6 months as an LPN. I'm a 32 year old female. I liked dermatology overall, but not the practice I was at. The doctors I worked for worked us nurses to death with low pay! I was making under $11.00/hr.! That office had a high nurse turnover. The doctors were grouchy, and the office was understaffed. So I left the practice. Types of things we did there though were: suture removal (I personally didn't like this, grossed me out, but I have a weak stomach at times), steroid injections per the doctor's order, wound care, assisted during biopsies, assisted during surgery, cleaned & sanitized surgical tools, called patient's with biopsy results, called in medications, assisted patient's with light therapy, etc. We were BUSY at the office. But as I said, the office was poorly managed & understaffed. I did like dermatology nursing overall though. Good luck! I hope you like your job and work at a wonderful place!
