LVN's in Plastic Surgery or Dermatology ?Register Today!
- by Joeyzoom Sep 27, '11Hello fellow nurses and nursing students!
I am currently an LPN (LVN) student in New York, and upon graduation in May, I will be relocating to California for family reasons, and to pursue a career in cosmetic nursing (I am immediately bridging to my RN). My question is:
What is the need for LVN's in dermatology and/or cosmetic surgery in private clinics ? I have worked at UCLA, and I know they utilize LVNs in their Plastics department and clinics - so I will of course apply to them first; though, my long term goal is to work in a private practice where I can learn more hands on, such as botox, fillers, peels and the like.
Any information would be greatly appreciated! Also, what is a base pay rate scale for LVN's in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas?
