Why Nurses Should Train in Botox and Dermal Filler
Are you a Registered Nurse or Midwife considering a training course in Botox, dermal fillers or other medical aesthetic techniques? Registered Nurses currently account for over 50% of the delegates we see on our Cosmetic Courses Botox and Dermal Filler Training Programmes due to the high degree of transferable skills which can be utilised moving from nursing to medical aesthetics.
What are the benefits of Botox Training for Nurses
Over the past 15 years of medical aesthetic training we have found that nurses are very well suited to this field because they have good transferable skills. It just takes an artistic eye and a desire to branch out from mainstream nursing to become successful in Botox treatments.
From talking to our past delegates they tell us the major benefits of moving into aesthetics are as follows:
- Hour-for-hour as an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner (either self-employed or working for a clinic), you can expect to earn far more than you would as a Bank Nurse.
- Lots of nurses and midwives feel that, whereas medical professionals were once very well paid in the NHS, recent changes to the pension system will erode this therefore learning a new trade like Botox or dermal fillers can help towards your pension fund.
- With the current changes to employment conditions for NHS nurses, Cosmetic Courses receive a lot of applications from nurses who have had enough of the NHS red tape. They feel that their patient contact time is being diminished because they have too many targets, budgets and deadlines to meet. They miss that patient contact and the element of planning treatments and seeing the outcomes.
- Medical aesthetics is a very nice area to work in because you have much more control over all these areas, plus the products you use and the techniques you choose for administering them to patients.
One question we often get asked is following your training how to do you maintain your NMC registration. Clinical Lead and Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner Mel Recchia answers this common question in the following video:
