i was curious to know what the training is like to perform laser procedures as an RN in California. The Physician is excited to show me how to do this but I am needing more background as it pertains to nursing scope of practice. What resources would help with assessment, interventions, side effects, etc...?

I'm not sure if this will help you but at my work they had an RN come and train me on how to use the specific laser. Including side effects, adverse effects, what not to do and why, what to assess before starting and etc.
Also, a lot of the lasers manuals have good information/ instructions.
