Medical Professional Testimonials

My experience at the National Laser Institute was both a positive and memorable one. The program was exceptional, cutting edge, and exciting. Our class had knowledgeable and upbeat instructors who were current experts in their given fields. The students in my class came from far and wide, from across the country and all over the world. There are colleagues I met at National Laser Institute who I will definitely keep in touch with long term. While still in training, I began an intensive job search for an R.N. position in laser and injectables. Louis Silberman, the president and CEO of National Laser Institute was supportive and helpful in speaking with potential employers inquiring about me. Even before the end of the training, I had landed my dream job thanks to the excellent learning opportunities from the reputable and elite institution, National Laser Institute. Thank you National Laser Institute for your encouragement, inspiration, opportunity, quality education, and personal touch.
– Christina “Krysia” Fenzl, BS, RN, RYT

The National Laser Institute’s 8-day course was encompassing and informative. The instructors were very knowledgeable in their fields of expertise. The personalized setting provided a good forum for questions and hands-on experience. The intensity of the course prepared to get my practice started. I would absolutely recommend this course to a colleague and a friend.
– Shannon Smith Maxey, MD

I came to National Laser Institute looking for something to supplement my full-time job as an ICU nurse. I never dreamed it would lead me down the path I find myself on now! I had always been interested in the medical aesthetic industry, but as an RN, I really had no idea just how much career potential there was for me. From day one, everyone I came across at National Laser Institute was completely professional, always helpful and clearly at the top of their game. From the delightful front desk staff to the impressive group of handpicked instructors from all over the country, I never doubted that I had chosen the right place to start my new adventure. And an adventure it has been! After finishing my courses at National Laser Institute, I teamed up with a physician and began offering my services to family and friends, starting with BOTOX® injections and soon after doing various types of fillers. The referrals came quickly and the more I practiced, the more skilled I became at injecting. At that point it was still a part time project, but when I decided to move to Southern California, where I currently reside, the opportunities I came upon quickly convinced me to leave the grueling trenches of the ICU for good and pursue aesthetic nursing full time. That was a year ago, and today I am the director of a busy med spa in Los Angeles where I provide all types of laser treatments, injectables, chemical peels, collagen induction therapy and various other skin care and anti-aging procedures. I said goodbye to twelve-hour shifts and hello to a much nicer salary, and I can truly say I love going to work! I am forever indebted to the kind folks at National Laser Institute for giving me the tools, the knowledge, the encouragement and motivation to pursue my dreams. The sky’s the limit!
– Amanda deWysocki, RN, BSN, CCRN
