Hi everyone! 

Thanks for taking the time to read my post!  I am asking for advance on how to get started in aesthetic/dermatology nursing!  I currently work in an inpatient Trauma/Orthopedic Surgery Unit but want to make the transition into aesthetics.  I have my BLS, ACLS, and TNCC, I know this is somewhat irrelevant to the aesthetics field but is something I can say I have. I know you need cosmetic training in botox/juvederm, laser therapy, etc it is something I'm willing to earn but I'm not sure what the chances are of getting a job with these certifications even with no experience in this realm of nursing. I am also starting a DNP/FNP program at the end of the month. But exactly HOW do I get into a field such as this?! I love skin care, struggled with acne when I was young so I would love to help others feel beautiful/relaxed in their own skin.  I also like the more relaxed nature of the field itself.  Any tips/advice would be very much appreciated! Thank you so much!!!

I'm very interested in this field as well! I'm a huge girly girl and pro-surgery. I was actually just reading this: http://psncb.org/CANS/. Hope it helps!
