  1. Not really sure where to post, so apologies if this is the wrong place!?

    I join as a dental nurse next year, and was asked last week for a copy of my CV and when I asked what it was for, was told it was mandatory for all medical branches.. But when I asked people who are also in and joining as medical branches no one else has had to do it.. Just looking for a bit of reassurance that it's not just me or maybe some light shed on to why maybe it is just me? Haha..

  2. Also only posted here as it wouldn't let me post anywhere else! So apologies again if it's wrong!

    For those joining as a trained medical specialist rather than as a student medical specialist, a CV is required upfront to establish the extent of your clinical experience in relation to the job you are applying for & to determine whether or not you are suitably qualified for the role without further professional training.

    Are you a civilian qualified dental nurse?

    If not, you may have selected DN (Q) instead of DN (S) when initially applying online. If so, you need to clarify your job choice with your AFCO.
  7. No! But there's been lots of confusion with my application as I've been passed from pillar to post between Chiefs and POs for one reason or another! It was made clear when I started the application last year that I'm not trained as there was a big drama about my quals (GCSEs)! Will email them Monday! Thought it was odd!

    Yep, we don't see many fang farriers assistants and dental hygienists, so there's usually a bit of head-scratching with regard qualifications, Disclosure (CRB), etc. :)
  9. Other than a lass I already know who's in, I'm yet to come across any others joining in that branch! Fang farrier !

  10. There was a girl who was joining as a dental nurse who took the RT with me earlier today...I thought it most odd and rare that I should see her!
