For nurses, aesthetics presents an amazing opportunity to develop new skills and branch into new areas of practice. In fact, some RNs may find that they prefer the creative world of aesthetics to more high-pressure, high-stress fields of practice. The Aesthetic Immersion is pleased to present nurses with a range of training courses to help them develop their confidence in aesthetic practice.
What is Aesthetic Nursing?
An aesthetic nurse is any RN whose day-to-day responsibilities include the provision of aesthetic and cosmetic services. For example, an aesthetic nurse may help patients look and feel their best by way of Botox injections, dermal fillers, and beyond. Aesthetic nurses may practice in dermatology clinics, in med spas, or in private practices that are wholly devoted to medical aesthetics.
Education Requirements for an Aesthetic Nurse
The first step toward becoming an aesthetic nurse is obtaining your RN designation. Generally, this will require the completion of a BSN program, where you will develop foundational knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and standards of clinical care. And, though it is not required, many nurses prefer to gain a few years of real-world practice experience before they start honing their skills in aesthetic nursing. Additional training provides the confidence needed to ensure optimal cosmetic outcomes and to promote patient safety.
Do I Need Any Certification or Credentials?
In most states, simply having an RN is the only legal requirement for practicing as an aesthetic nurse. However, some nurses may wish to seek additional credentialing, simply to become more competitive in the job market or to land the most prestigious positions. For example, some aesthetic nurses choose to pursue certification through the Plastic Surgical Nursing Certification Board. Some employers may look favorably on this added certification. Completing training courses from The Aesthetic Immersion can provide the skill and knowledge level needed to obtain this credentialing and to begin confidently practicing as an aesthetic nurse. We welcome you to contact us to learn more about the available programs.
Considering Becoming an Aesthetic Nurse?
At The Aesthetic Immersion, we hear from plenty of individuals who are just getting started in the nursing field and who consider aesthetics to be a creatively stimulating field of practice. And, we also hear from RNs who have been practicing for years or even decades and simply want a change of pace. The truth is, there are many reasons why it might make sense to become an aesthetic nurse. Consider just a few of the benefits of this career path.
One reason to pursue work in aesthetic nursing? The opportunities abound. Treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers have gained prominence and surged in popularity, with more and more women and men seeking non-surgical methods to reverse the signs of aging. This boom in interest has led to widespread openings in med spas, dermatology practices, aesthetic medicine clinics, and beyond. There is ample demand for trained and qualified clinicians who are confident in administering cosmetic care.
As demand for aesthetic nurses increases, so does the average level of pay. Leading job recruitment sites indicate that aesthetic nurses can make anywhere from $65,000 to $90,000 annually. Certainly, nurses who obtain higher levels of clinical and medical experience will command the most competitive salary ranges. In other words, pursuing training opportunities through The Aesthetic Immersion can prepare you for a career that is creatively satisfying, patient-focused, and rewarding on a financial level.
Job Duties Entail
Another reason to consider a career in aesthetic nursing is that it provides the chance to work in a fun environment where every day brings new challenges. Aesthetic nurses have varied job duties. Just a few examples include:
- Assessing patient skin condition
- Consulting about potential treatments
- Administering aesthetic treatments, including dermal fillers, Botox, laser hair removal, laser rejuvenation treatments, and more
- Preparing instruments and procedure facilities
- Caring for patients following an aesthetic procedure
- Instructing patients on any necessary aftercare steps
Here is Where You Can Work
For nurses who are looking to get away from high-stress healthcare facilities, branching into aesthetic nursing may offer a unique opportunity. There are many types of work environments available to aesthetic nurse professionals, most of them characterized by being fun, creative, and varied. Some potential work environments for aesthetic nurses include:
- Med spas
- Plastic surgery offices
- Dermatology offices
- Private practices and clinics devoted to aesthetic care
There are countless ways for aesthetic nurses to seek rich, exciting careers providing cosmetic care for their patients.
