Hello, 

I've been trying to do some research about performing cosmetic procedures like lip injections, botox etc. As a BSN I read about getting certified through the nation laser institute to do these. once I get certified am I able to work in my own cosmetic practice? I have tried looking all over the web and cannot seem to find distinct information that indicates weather or not I can do them without a physician being present. I have been told in Arizona a nurse can without supervision but I see nothing to support these claims. Does anyone know?

Have you visited the Arizona Board of Nursing website?  If not, you should consider doing so as this is most likely addressed there, or in the Arizona nurse practice act.

Best wishes.

I have, all I was able to find was what was within scope of a BSN. it listed dermal injections and botox with an medical esthetician certificate however, limited info on the medspa aspect and supervision. 

thank you for your help
