The opportunities available following completion of the OHE qualification will be different for everyone. Some nurses will have their own clinics within their practice, while others might use their qualification as a stepping stone to get into university to train as a hygienist/ therapist. Whatever your goal is, make sure that you try to use your qualification to its full potential.
Well, where should we begin? I suppose it all depends on the current circumstances within your practice and on how much or how little work may be required to get your project off the ground. For example, the first practice in which I ran an oral health clinic already had a fairly well-established service. Their existing oral health educator was leaving, and it was planned that I would gain my qualification and take over from her.
