I enrolled in manicure school!!! I am joining Lois Jean in the foot care arena. No we are not partners, but LJ is coaching me thru.
I have never done foot care, so I figured a pedicure is pretty close to what I should do, in addition to the assessment skills of the feet. So, for my own peace of mind, and for my own entertainment, I enrolled in beauty school.
When I am done I will only be able to be a manicurist in PA b/c it was the cheapest school. In NJ, the fees were outrageous, and I don't really need to learn how to be a manicurist. The owner of the school did tell me some manicurist are pulling in $1000/wk in PA. I find that hard to believe, but if it is true, I may just leave nursing!!!
I am the oldest student, at 40, all the rest are teeny boppers, except my instructors.
When I am about halfway through, I will finish enrolling in wound care school. I figured by the time the paperwork is done, it would allow me to finish nail school and take my nail boards.
I got a free manicure today too!! (But I tell you, I can do a better job w/o school than this girl did
WooooHoooo! Who wants a pedicure?? I will need to practice!
Wow...$1000/week for buffiing and puffing feet?
Count me in!!! The feet are the most abused body part right? sooooo there's a lot of business out there...
