    My limited exposure to dermatology clinics or offices is they are staffed with MA'S, CNA'S, maybe LVN'S. I don't know of any reason or need for an RN?

    However I don't know everything and don't want to discourage you. Call or visit their offices or clinics, ask if they hire RN's and fill out applications.

    Nursing education in the US produces generalist nurses- they do not take specialized paths in school. Learning a nursing specialty happens during job orientation.
