I live in Oklahoma.  I'm looking forward to branching out to a different form of nursing.  Can't wait to get started!

Hello JenRNinMI, Aesthetics nursing is really SO FUN! I took a Botox/filler course in August and I have been working part-time at a med-spa while also keeping my full-time job in the ER. I love it! I hope you enjoy the course and you will learn so much as an aesthetics RN! Enjoy, Anne Marie

Anne marie, Hello!

I am an FNP, and have been doing a specialty for 5 years, but now wanting to get into Aesthetics, and thinking about taking a course in botox and fillers.

it seems every job wants 1 year experience with injectables. Did the job you found not require that? or did they accept the training/certification as experience? 
I'm trying to figure out if it's worth the money for an expensive $1700 1 day class, or if I still won't be able to get hired.  It's so maddening when no place will train you!
thanks for your help.

I am in the same boat! Looking for a good course to take so I can at least put it on my resume

This place seems to be the best I've found for botox and filer training in the US: https://aestheticmedicaltraining.com/
it's $1,650, for a one day class, and you can get a video package to go along with it for $100. They have them all over the country.


•I would stay away from Empire Medical, very bad reviews and complaints on BBB, seems like it's some kind of scam.

A very impressive one is Dr Martin's training Center in Barrie, Ontario (basically Toronto), but it is $4,500, yikes!, but it seems very comprehensive with hours of didactic to do before you get there, and then 2 dasy of in-person training with lots of hands-on injecting on both days.
The thing is that if you don't start doing it right after the training, they say you will forget it, so I hate to take it and then hope I get a job or I've wasted the money.
Being an NP is so very weird, lol. There should be mentoring programs for all new grads, and for anyone that wants to transition to a new field. It's really just luck of the draw if you get training somewhere.

Hello. Is American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery (AAAMS) in Beverly Hills a good school? Anyone enrolled there? How was it? Thanks 🙂
