Hello! I recently took a course/workshop for botox injections, laser, and chemical peels. I would like to get my feet wet and start learning botox - and I found a med spa that will train me and help me get going.

The pay is pretty low, but it would help me get some learning under my belt.

I work full-time in a hospital as an RN, so this is definitely more of a side-hustle.

I guess I am wondering - am I wasting my time trying to do Botox on the side? What is the larger picture of this? Is this really just going to side-track me and take me away from other goals? What is the "opportunity cost" to consider?

Do you think aesthetics nursing as a side-hustle is a good way to go? I could probably make more money picking up extra shifts at the hospital, but sometimes the hospital environment is a little too intense!!!

Thanks for any advice. Anne Marie

This seems like something everyone wants to try, but no one finds sustainable. The saying, "Don't quit your day job." springs to mind.

I am interested in doing the same thing.  I just registered for a class for Botox and dermal filler training in March.  Excited to get started!  Tired of hospital nursing

hi, I'm thinking of taking a botox and filer class as well.  What class did you take? how was it?
thanks.

I'm looking at one by the AMET, it's $1650 for a one day class.
Also, Dr Martin's is 2 days and lots of didactic video, in Barrie, Canada, near Toronto, land looks very comprehensive, but it's $4500 - yikes!
