Aesthetic/cosmetic NPs in SoCal?

Published

Are there any aesthetic / cosmetic NPs out there in SoCal? If you are, did you get a masters for FNP? I want to know if it is worth going back to NP school even though, in the end, I'd want to be in the aesthetic field.

I am an RN with my BSN considering going back to school. I worked med surg, am currently working in an ICU, and have realized that I cannot do bedside nursing forever. I have always had a strong desire to be a cosmetic nurse but I live in Kansas and cosmetic nursing is not big here at all.

Honestly I am trying to decide between moving to SoCal to try to work as a cosmetic RN and get experience now, or to stay in KS & get my NP first and then move out there.

I have my FNP and did cosmetics for awhile. The most successful providers of Botox and fillers I've found in So Cal are not NPs but RNs. I don't think it's necessary to get your NP to be successful in that field.

Thanks for your response!

Would you say more companies are willing to hire RNs or NPs more?
