I am highly interested in becoming an Aesthetic RN. I currently practice in a hospital on a tele floor in CA. After applying to several (many, many, many) positions in the cosmetic/derm field, I have found that all MD's do not want to train RN's, but would rather hire an experienced laser/botox RN. I really do not blame them. The only job offer I received was at a medi-spa, where I believe the owner was practicing illegally.
So here I am nearly a year after searching and realizing that experience is the key. Has anyone:
1. Taken an Aesthetic Certification course?
2. Been interested in taking an Aesthetic Certification course?
There are many up and coming regulations submitted to the BRN so things will soon be changing as far as licensure and certification to practice lasers/botox/fillers. All this will cost $$$$$. For now, we must find our own way and find a safe way to practice.
