BADN, the UK’s professional association for dental nurses, has today re-launched its Fellow grade of membership.

Those dental nurses who have been BADN members for at least 10 years and who meet a set of specific criteria may submit a portfolio of evidence for assessment which, if approved by the Executive Committee, will lead to the award of the BADN Fellow title and use of the post-nominal letters FBADN.

The submitted portfolio must contain evidence of:
