    Empire Medical Training?

    Hello Martin Lie - I have not heard of Empire Medical Training. I took my aesthetics training in San Diego with the American Board of Aesthetic Medicine (ABAM). I believe the best place to start is laser/light therapies and botulinum toxins. To be honest, now that I am getting my feet wet in the field (as a side hustle) ... I would LOVE to get more training and learn more tricks. It really is such a fun field!!! Best of luck to you.

    Did getting your MSN-Education open doors?

    Hello! Please help me :-) I am trying to figure out which Master's degree to pursue. I am considering MSN-Education vs. MSN-Leadership vs. FNP. My main goal is to open doors and have options and a good schedule. I currently work in a large, very prominent hospital and just want doors to open where I can make more money and have a SWEEEET schedule :-)

    My future is muddy

    I am so lost. I am currently 4 classes in to an FNP program and just totally lost. Is it worth it to keep going? What kind of job will I have once I finish the FNP program? I keep wondering if I would be better off pursuing an MSN-Ed or MSN-Leadership. How do I know the right path for me? It sounds like FNP is more stress and more responsibility. I don't want to keep dumping more money into a degree that I'm not sure will be useful??? Is it more money/more career satisfaction or just more stress???

    How to get eyebrow arch

    Hello, I am working on the side as an aesthetics RN. I have 2 questions: (1) How can I create a nice eyebrow arch with botox for my clients? Also (2) What sort of insurance should I carry as an aesthetics RN on the side? Thank you for any info! Anne Marie

    Just registered for Botox and Dermal Filler training.

    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

    Is starting at a medspa the best way?

    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

    Student Nurse - interested in E.R.

    Hello! I am currently a student nurse with my graduation date in 2012. I am VERY interested in working in the E.R. at my hospital - and mainly interested in emergency nursing. I was actually considering getting my E.M.T. ... possibly this summer - and I was wondering if that is a GOOD idea for my future plans to be in emergency nursing, or if it would be a waste of my time??? I have a Wilderness First Responder certificate through Wilderness Medical Associates - I just know that I enjoy emergency room type stuff :-) What can I say ... I'm an adrenaline junkie!!! :-) My main question is ... since I am going to be an R.N. ... would it be a waste of my time to pursue my EMT/paramedic as well? Thank you! ~Anne Marie
