Hello,

I am a RN with a BSN that has a background in NICU and PACU outpatient surgery. I am extremely interested in aesthetics and I am debating if I should get into the field as a RN and gain experience first (I've seen RN's open their own injectables practice and make bank but I've also heard that RN's that work at a medspa is a dog eat dog world and is commission-based) OR  just go back to school and start my aesthetics career as a FNP?

In addition, I am debating on whether to go the MSN or DNP route? I know the MSN is obviously much cheaper and can start practicing as a NP sooner but it is said that a DNP will be the new criteria come 2025 so I'd like to just be smart on what route I take. Also, if any FNP's know of any good/reasonably priced programs that would be amazing! ANY advice, suggestions, comments are greatly appreciated!!

I think that you should start as a RN and get experience. It will make it a lot easier to get a job once you get you NP. I’m neither so I’m not really qualified to give advice but I have noticed that when I look for the jobs most places are asking for RN (very few asking for NP)...probably because it’s cheaper to pay a RN than a NP
