Medical Esthetic Nursing In Massachusetts

  1. Hi All,

    I am an RN in MA and currently in the beginning stages of opening a skin care shop. I have found loads of information on the field of Medical Esthetic Nursing in other states but not much in Ma. I have found a few operations in Massachusetts run by nurses but no training / certification for nurses in this field.
    I have decided to take the licensing course to become an Esthetician but only because I need the proper licensure/exp. to open up a shop. If I didnt have this license myself I would have to keep someone on staff at all times who did have it.
    Anyhow - Does anyone have any info on this field specific to Massachusetts? The only thing I have found in Ma that comes close to the training found in other states is a course at Catherine Hinds and that does not certify you as a "Medical Esthetic RN" it is an advanced class for Estheticians. I would take the class but It is full time, 5 days / wk for 20+ weeks. I have 3 small kids & just cant be gone that long or I could have a divorce on my hands (oh, add 1+ hour drive to Woburn and back each day)

    Thanks so much for reading, any info will be greatly appreciated.

    havent heard of any programs...try checking with some local esthetician shops to see if they know of/ can refer you to one..i have seen some with an RN managing, not sure if thats her only role..I think in the Andover area.
