A previous BDNG survey highlighted the lack of consistency of nursing role definition and associated Agenda for Change banding as well an absence of a structured career pathway for nurses who specialise in dermatology. The BDNG has collaborated with the British Association of Dermatologist (BAD) Education Board Nursing Workstream to develop role descriptors for dermatology nurses alongside a suggested career development guide.
This work will help address the concerns of members from both organisations, against a backdrop of workforce issues where the need to recruit, train and retain dermatology nurses has become increasingly critical for service sustainability.
