Northern California Chapter 004


The mission of the Dermatology Nurses’ Association Northern California Chapter is to further the mission and objectives of the National Dermatology Nurses’ Association by providing quality dermatology-specific education and networking opportunities to regional members. Exposure to the latest dermatology practices, technology, and products are a mainstay of our annual conferences, and we pride ourselves on being welcoming of new members.

Our regional chapter was started in the early 1990’s by a group of passionate and driven dermatology nurses working to connect members and advance national programs. The chapter’s educational conference is held annually on the first Saturday of November. For information on future chapter meetings and conferences, or to request a conference brochure, please email
