Who is this course for?

Dental Sedation Nursing

This course is for dental nurses looking to complete the NEBDN Dental Sedation Nursing Certificate Course and is unique in that you Complete Everything ONLINE and IN YOUR OWN SURGERY including the final examination. No days off work and no giving up your saturdays and sundays . This is the gold standard in sedation training for dental nurses. Dental Sedation is an interesting part of dentistry but requires an understanding of topics outside of those taught on the dental nursing diploma course in the interest of patient and staff safety and once you complete this course you will be at the top of your game. PLEASE NOTE - this course is online based and in English so you will need to speak good English and be reasonably computer literate. Like most postgraduate learning this course is self directed learning meaning that whilst we provide the course content and support, it is upto you to learn it and take it in in order to pass the final examination. The record of competence requires commitment and the exam requires revision in order to pass so this course should not be taken lightly (download the course info at the bottom of the page for more info)
