We have seen a large number of Registered Nurses and Midwifes considering a move into the aesthetics industry. This is due to the high degree of transferable skills which can be utilised moving from nursing to medical aesthetics. Since 2002 we have been leading the way in aesthetic training for nurses.
How does working in the aesthetic industry differ to the NHS?
Over the past 20 years of medical aesthetic training we have found that nurses are very well suited to this field because they have good transferable skills. It just takes an artistic eye and a desire to branch out from mainstream nursing to become successful in aesthetic, Botox and Dermal Filler treatments. From talking to our past aesthetic nurse delegates, the benefits of moving to aesthetics are:
Medical aesthetics gives you more patient time and creativity in your treatments in order to delight your patients. You have the control over the treatments you administer, techniques you choose and products you use to provide the best results for your patients.
Aesthetics is an incredibly rewarding industry, you can change patients lives with the skills you develop.
The work life balance from becoming an aesthetic nurse is also an important benefit for nurses and midwives looking to start their own career within aesthetics. Becoming your own boss, you are able to decide your hours. Having this key benefit, aesthetic nurses tend to have a greater work life balance and achieve a higher job satisfaction.
Being your own boss also means you have an uncapped earning potential. Aesthetic treatments are becoming increasingly popular with high demand across the country. As an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner (either self-employed or working for a clinic), you can expect to earn far more than you would as a Nurse in the NHS.

Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler Training for Nurses
The Foundation Botox and Dermal Filler Training is the ideal course if you are new to the aesthetic industry. This is an entry-level recognised course that allows you to learn the basic knowledge and skills required to start practicing treatments. Once you have completed the Foundation training, you can build on skills and confidence and move in to more advanced treatments.
Gain formal recognition of your knowledge and skills as an aesthetic nurse with our Aesthetic Qualifications. The level 7 Diploma for new practitioners or the JCCP Fast track Assessment if you are an experienced aesthetic nurse are both great qualification to future proof your career.
The Fast Track Assessment has been built in collaboration with Learna and JCCP to allow aesthetic nurses to join the JCCP register after successful completion. This is seen as a “Level 7 alternative” for experienced nurses to demonstrate their knowledge and experience within aesthetic medicine.
Our aesthetic courses for nurses are based across our state of the art training clinics across the UK and Ireland. If you would like to speak to an advisor regarding our aesthetic training courses or qualifications then please contact our dedicated support team who since 2002 have helped thousands of nurses just like yourself set up their own profitable aesthetic clinics.
