“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
“My experience at National Laser Institute was amazing. The program was very organized and my clinical instructor was truly an artist. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to become a master injector!”
- Dr. Anita M. Milici
“I feel like I am totally prepared to incorporate BOTOX® and Dermal Fillers into my practice. The hand on experience with physicians’ instruction was what I was looking for in a course.”
- Harry Froeschke, MD
“I’m a middle-class mom, wife and nurse. I struggled over my decision to come to National Laser Institute. Would this be the right school for me? Should I take so much time away from my family? In this economy, should I invest this money in my education? From the very first day I arrived at National Laser Institute, all this inner-turmoil dissipated. I knew emotionally and intellectually that I had made the best decision for my family, my husband and my career.”
- Myra Macdougall, RN
“Loved the hands on portion! Great experience to get me started in my practice.”
- Krista Wood, RN
“This was the best 10-day experience! I couldn’t have asked for more. I’m from North Carolina and was wanting to make a career change to a RN/esthetician. Clients were so happy when we were performing treatments on them. The staff made the experience—they’re all so happy to be at work!

My name is Melanie and I am an RN from Michigan. I have been a nurse for approximately 20 years and have become rather disenchanted with the direction that health care has taken. I saw the ad for the National Laser Institute and thought I would explore further. From the first telephone call that I made, the adviser was very professional and helpful right down to offering hotels in the area that would provide transportation during my experience. Once I arrived in Scottsdale, all went like clockwork, from the moment I stepped off of the plane. The staff at National Laser are awesome, helpful, patient galore, while providing a conducive learning environment, even providing marketing strategies! Words cannot express my complete and total gratitude! I would encourage anyone considering this journey to take a leap of faith and give the National Laser Institute a whir! Upon my return home I am currently in the process of opening a Wellness Center and Spa La La offering classes in wellness, reflexology sessions, aroma touch, massage, manicures, pedicures, photofacials, tattoo / hair removal and while you are relaxing at our location enjoy a green bubble tea! Thank you Louis Silberman and the staff at National Laser Institute!
- Melanie, RN
I was so pleased with the education I received at this school. Every day was fun, exciting, and the instructors really want you to succeed. I would recommend this school to any nurse looking to make a career change.
- Elisa Eileres
I felt my time at National Laser Institute was well worth the price and the experience. I was surprised I was able to inject on so many patients! I chose your program because of the good reviews and everything that the price included. I injected my first patient with Botox a week later and I didn’t hesitate. I felt very confident! Thank you for following up. I’m looking forward to coming to an advanced course if you ever come to Los Angeles.

“First of all the school is great. School is in Scottsdale–a most affluent area–so a lot of medical esthetic procedures are done here (the Physician’s Skin Institute – attached to the school). The class is taught by top notch staff, physician and nurse. And there’s lots of hands on time–which is most important. I highly recommend the class. I feel attending the class was a very worthwhile investment, and I plan to attend other classses there in the future. Originally, I was looking at a different school and I’m very glad I went to National Laser Institute.”

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. I am grateful to you for providing me with the tools needed to create a bright and exciting future for myself in the medical aesthetics industry!
