A Day in the Life of a Clinical Instructor
One of the most important roles of the clinical instructor role is providing instruction to students, which is based on a course syllabus. With nursing concepts and theories being taught in nursing school, it is important that student nurses also know how to apply them in the clinical setting. That is where clinical instructors enter the scenario. Their job is to connect what students learn in school and aid them in real life application. Textbooks and other written materials may be used, but the teaching strategy of CIs mostly rely on laboratory simulations and on-site rotations.
Dermatology nurses receive an estimate of $85,000 on average every year, which is $15,000 above the salary of generalist nurses. They may even receive a sign-in bonus for applicants and for those already working as one, retention bonus may complete the annual income. This bonus that we are talking about, ranges from $517 to $7,861.
Being a dermatology nurse can be exciting. Nurses may feel thrilled and love this specialized area of nursing and with this comes the best benefit of them all. They say when you love your work, you never go to work at all. That applies to this job as well, as long as nurses love what they are doing and consider it as their passion, they will never bored and get tired of it and that no matter what hardships may be encountered along the way, they will always emerge and remain standing as a proud dermatology nurse.
