New RN with 10 years of experience as esthetician
- 0Jun 29, '13 by HollyGoLightlyRNHi there. I am a brand new grad who has just passed the NCLEX and I'd love to get into aesthetic nursing. I've been a licensed esthetician for 10 years and have owned my own studio for 8 of those years. Any advice for those of you working in aesthetic nursing on how to market myself to a plastics or cosmetic dermatologist? What are they looking for in a nurse as far as skills are concerned? Is there any further education I can attend that would increase my marketability in the field?

Anyhow, I don't know much about this field but I do know that most spas love nurses who can do botox as well as laser. Do you have experience in that either one of them?

I am a BSN with 6 months med surge experience, considering aesthetician school and/or laser training. Can anyone give some advice as to whether aesthetician school is necessary/beneficial to break into this field? Or should I just try and find an RN job with a derm/plastic surgeon? If further school is recommended, is aesthetician school training preferred over laser training? Both are expensive but there is much less training time required for lasers… thank you!!
