I'd like to get advice on the best way to pursue a career path in Aesthetics as a New Grad RN. Do you think it is best to have experience in an acute setting first before pursing this route? Pros and Cons?

Hey there! I think acute care is always good experience to have. Is it necessary for aesthetic nursing? not so much as your clients will be healthy 99% of the time. I worked at an aesthetic nurse for about three years. I went in without experience as they were willing to train on site. I would encourage you to follow whatever path in nursing you feel passionate about, however aesthetics is VERY specific. Depending on where you work you will acquire different skills (IV's, IM Sub-q intradermal injections, assessments, etc). Hope that helps a little! good luck :)
