I am a RN with a BSN that has a background in NICU and PACU outpatient surgery. I am extremely interested in aesthetics and I am debating if I should get into the field as a RN and gain experience first (I've seen RN's open their own injectables practice and make bank but I've also heard that RN's that work at a medspa is a dog eat dog world and is commission-based) OR just go back to school and start my aesthetics career as a FNP?
In addition, I am debating on whether to go the MSN or DNP route? I know the MSN is obviously much cheaper and can start practicing as a NP sooner but it is said that a DNP will be the new criteria come 2025 so I'd like to just be smart on what route I take. Also, if any FNP's know of any good/reasonably priced programs that would be amazing! ANY advice, suggestions, comments are greatly appreciated!!
