Should I get Esthetics License???

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I am currently working as an RN in Wisconsin (job in Med-Surg and unrelated to esthetics), and also enrolled in an esthetics program which I will complete in a few weeks. I am having a very very difficult time trying to determine if I should seek licensure for esthetics also. My nursing license does cover my esthetics practice. Should I even take the time, stress, and money to obtain another license? I am looking for any helpful information or experience that will help me decide what to do. I am having a difficult time finding nurses who have obtained an esthetician license after becoming a nurse, but know of several estheticians who obtain nursing licenses (most of who elect to let go of esthetics license once they start career in nursing). Please help!

    If you're actually gonna spend the time to work in a med spa/salon spa so that you can understand the approach and customer service aspect of esthetics than go for it, but if you're not gonna bother full utilizing the education/customer experience/job experience why bother wasting your money?

    There is plenty you can learn from other estheticians and work environments but don't bother investing if that's not your intent
