In this short video we see lead Trainer at Cosmetic Courses and Aesthetic Nurse Mel Recchia answer the FAQ; How do I maintain my NMC registration following botox training?


one question that does come up from nurses particularly is about revalidation. So when you work for the NHS you obviously have to be registered as well with the NMC, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, you have to maintain your NMC registration and this is no different as an aesthetic practitioner, you still have to be registered with the NMC so you still have to fulfil all of the guidelines and requirements of that registration recently they have changed the process of revalidation so some nurses have been worried that if they don’t work in the NHS how are they going to be able to do this it’s perfectly possible to do this and if you look closely at the requirements you will find that you will fulfill all of those requirements in your aesthetic practice, you still have to connect your CPD points, your continuing professional development points and certainly with cosmetic courses you will obtain your CPD points but you will also get CPD points from going to the conferences some journals that you read will often use CPD points for reading articles so there is no worry about your registration and your revalidation and if you look closely at the requirements you will find that it is perfectly possible to revalidate and the British association of cosmetic Nurses have worked very closely with the NMC in setting up some of these guidelines as well so so you can maintain and you have to maintain your registration.
