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!
– Rosalie H.
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 advisor 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 have been home now for 10 days and my training seems so long ago, yet also like it was just yesterday. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my 7 days at National Laser Institute. Your instructors are personable, knowledgeable, open to questions, and very entertaining. I felt my days at NLI were a great networking experience. My class was full of interesting students with extremely varied backgrounds and education levels. I have already contacted several since home to “pick” their brains about their particular expertise. I have also contacted instructors with a few questions and they have been great at responding with succinct pertinent answers. If I need any further training, I will definitely look to NLI for my education!
– Gloria Phillips, RN
I had a great experience in Chicago with my classes in laser and fillers. I really liked all of the instructors, especially Sandra from Dallas. She was a wonderful instructor in laser and I felt as though I had known her all my life! She was very patient and very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease.
Jan was great with teaching us in regards to Botox and fillers. She was very patient with all of us and she made her class come alive. She never made anyone feel as though they were below her—she made sure you were involved in the entire process!
I am a midnight nurse and I am usually going to bed at the time I was getting up for class, but the class was involved and kept me moving and I found myself completely engaged with the material being provided! Now I just have to put it all together as so I can get started with my career.
It is reassuring to know if you have any questions that you can call National Laser Institute and they will be there for you! Thank you so much again, NLI!

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!
