Derma Nursing 101

Hello everyone!

You must have noticed that I'm MIA again this past couple of weeks but I have a good reason this time ^_^

I have been very busy training so I can become a dermatological nurse. I think this specialization is the perfect one for me since I love skincare and beauty stuff. And also, I don't need to go to work at night since almost all derma clinics closes before 9pm so that's really good news for my health hehe :)

I was very lucky to be included in this training course and to be given a full sponsored scholarship by Sen. Trillianes. I did not need to spend a single peso because of him. Thank you so much, Senator, and it was so nice meeting you in person.

I also want to thank Sir Eric, our course director, for the continous support and for teaching me a valuable lesson about how to become succesful in life. I know that he did not get paid to do that special self-actualization activity...and that's one of the reason why I'm so thankful for it :)

I'm also very blessed because our trainer is non other than Dra. Michelle B. Manuel, my very own dermatologist. She usually conduct lectures both locally and internationally to other doctors and I feel so lucky to learn a lot of things from her (and I'm telling you guys, she really knows a lot!). She has this great capability to teach and I can really grasp her lectures easily. Learning from one of the best in her field is one of the greatest thing I got from this experience. Thank you so much Dra. Michelle! I hope to learn more from you ^_^

I just want to share with you a couple of our "class picture". They are very informal coz we just took it before our class started hehe ^_^

And here's a picture with Dra. Michelle. She's the one on the right of the picture (wearing a pink top). She treated us with lots of pizza (yum!) after a long day of learning.

I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to become a great dermatological nurse in the future and if that happens, I'll probably open my very own skin spa/derma clinic ^_^
Till next time, bye!

Hi Crystal!

I was surprised that someone is offering a training for Derma Nursing and I am very much interested in it. Since I am sooooo "kikay" and also suffers from acne. Also Dra. Manuel is my derma before I left for abroad for work! Sad to say I wasn't able to follow up on my treatment.

I'm very interested in the training i hope you can share to me the full details of how you got in the program? I'm planning to go back to the Philippines soon and pursue a career in nursing. You can email me at

Thanks in advance :-)
