Cosmetic nursing/Nurse injector

  1. Wow.. Google overload!

    I've been a neonatal ICU nurse for 12 years. Recently I've been hearing more and more about laser hair removal, Botox injections, Lip injections etc..

    I'm really really interested in this. Does anybody know about NJ laws regarding who does this? I can't seem to find a definitive answer that a Dr can now delegate this to a RN. Also, how does one make the transition?

    Is there more schooling involved? Can I get on the job training? I just don't know where to start.

    Any ideas? I don't even see any job openings/postings for this type of nursing. Which makes me wonder if the laws of NJ actually haven't changed and all of this can only be done by a Dr.

    All help/info is appreciated!!

    Hi, I am also interested in learning about different types of cosmetic nursing. I have done some research for my state here in Maine and from what I have gathered you have to work under a MD. I am willing to travel to Mass or surrounding states to work but I am having a difficult time finding jobs that don't require experience. I have found some places with training but I'm not sure if its worth spending all the money and potentially not being able to find a job. Does anyone have any advice on how to get started? I currently work in acute dialysis and I love it but I have every other week off so I would really like to have a second profession in cosmetics.

    Thanks!

    Jamie
