The Council goal is to increase the competency of nurses caring for dermatology patients by ensuring that DNA members can obtain quality educational programs through multiple venues that enhance the practice of dermatology across the continuum of care, from pediatrics to geriatrics, from clinical practice to surgical practice, including phototherapy, patch testing, cosmetic dermatology and other specialty areas of dermatology.
