Aesthetician & Career Changers

Stephanie Morse 51 of 1303

What brought me to NLI was the passion for a career in the medical aesthetics industry, but what I received when I left the program was the knowledge of relationships that cannot be replaced.


Stephanie Fox 52 of 1303

One hour after receiving our certificates, Chrissy in admissions called me to let me know that a NY doctor called National Laser Institute and left a message about wanting to hire one of their graduates. I got a job interview with him for that Friday, not even one week after graduating! The day after I got home, I started calling local med spas and salons so that I could check out all of my options. I kept calling, and finally one woman gave me a job interview that SAME DAY. She hired me on the spot. On my way home I stopped at one of the places that said no to me by phone that I was really interested in, and I gave them my resume in person. I ended up walking to the back office for another interview, they showed me the machine they use, I spoke to the owner, and next thing I knew I had another job! Persistence paid off!

This has been the best week ever! I learned a lot from all the teachers. They gave me so much hope for my future and encouraged me that I can do this. If I could do this class over again, I would!!!

Lynn Morgan 56 of 1303

I am a recent graduate of National Laser Institute and I can say without hesitation my experience there was amazing. I have been an esthetician for 10 years and I was ready for the more medical side of things, and the instructors here were amazing in getting me prepared and confident to go out into the workplace and implementing everything I learned. Not only did I receive a superior education in all area of medical aesthetics, but I felt more confident in myself because of the positive, professional, happy atmosphere that was there. I would recommend this school to anyone!!

Rachel Callendar 57 of 1303

Ali Bohanon 59 of 1303

I just got offered a laser/esthetician career at a doctor’s office. It’s my dream manifesting, and I could never have done it without National Laser Institute!


Ludovica Mayer 60 of 1303

National Laser Institute is by far the best school in the valley! I enjoyed each and every day to the max as I was taught by such sweet and well knowledged instructors. The staff and owner do everything they can to make your learning experience comfortable and fun!


Lacy Randall 61 of 1303

I received my education from National Laser Institute and I wanted to let you guys know that I now have a job at a cosmetic laser center in my home town. I started working there last year in August. It has been a wonderful experience and I LOVE my job. My boss has been impressed with my general knowledge and competency with the lasers. I owe that to National Laser Institute. When people ask me where I went to school for this, I’m always proud to say National Laser Institute. It was such a memorable experience. Now, I am making more money than I thought possible as a new aesthetician. I want to thank you and all the staff at The National Laser Institute for helping me with that.

Erin 62 of 1303

Going to National Laser Institute was the best decision I have ever made. I was beginning to feel stuck in a job that was unsatisfying. I first heard about National Laser Institute from a physician I had been in contact with. I decided that I could not put my life on hold anymore and immediately called National Laser Institute and spoke to an admissions representative. I went to a grand opening to a laser center in Chicago and told the owner I had signed up for a comprehensive course at National Laser Institute and he offered me a job then and there, before I even was certified! He hired me based on the well-known reputation of National Laser Institute and knew I would get a great education and be prepared to work as soon as the course was completed.

Upon completion of the 2 week course at National Laser Institute, a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I met a lot of incredible people who I made lifelong friendships with, and I finally found a rewarding career that I am passionate about. The instructors are extremely personable and knowledgeable. I left National Laser Institute feeling prepared to go out into the real world and work as an accomplished laser technician. Attending National Laser Institute was an unforgettable experience and I can honestly say that it changed my life. Finally, everything seems to be falling in to place.


Arielle Gilfix 63 of 1303

I really enjoyed my time here at NLI. All the staff was amazing and they were very knowledgeable. They made my learning experience very easy. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. Such a great experience and worth every dime! I can’t wait to start working!


Jessica W. 64 of 1303
I can't say enough incredible things about National Laser Institute and everyone there!! I graduated from there recently and my short time there I learned 100 times more than I learned in 6 months of esthetics school! Everyone there made such an effort to work one on one with each student and really made it an awesome experience. We got tons of real life, hands-on experience in the spa. Never a dull moment! That being said, since I have worked in the med spa there I will say that this is THE best place in DFW to get any laser treatment because they have every possible laser you could possibly need while most offices are limited to 1 or 2 and will treat you with the limited lasers they have even if it isn't the best one for that particular treatment on your skin type. They have all the best products, knowledge, resources, they are THE BEST! 😀   Don't take my word for it, go see for yourself!!!
Kathleen Devers 65 of 1303

I am so happy I made this decision! I am so excited about adding this to my cosmetology license to give myself and my clients new opportunities. NLI is an intense program but worth every penny!


Donna Scott 66 of 1303

What made me look into laser is I had hormonal acne after having my son.  I was going to do it as an add-on to my Physical Therapy practice.  It took a different turn when I researched products and treatments and found NLI.

The NLI team was available and helpful after my certification and it helped a lot. Shortly after I started as a Certified Laser Technician, I won my first InStyle Magazine award and the life of an aesthetic expert began!  

Since then I have been invited to the MTV Movie Awards, the NFL Draft, New York Fashion Week, The Oscar’s, and The Grammy’s.  I love what I do! I am excited about the direction and the blueprint I created for anti-aging with the skills from NLI. It changed my life.  Awesome - thank you for being a part of the journey!  National Laser Institute gives you the skills to become famous! Get Ready!

Kaitlyn Snead 67 of 1303

Just wanted to give you an update. NLI forever changed my life. I'm a month into my career now at laser partners NWA and I love love love it.

I loved NLI. It was so much fun. I would go back over and over again. I already miss it. NLI has gone beyond preparing me for my future. Thank you so much for everything.

Going through this two week laser course has been the best experience I’ve had in a very long time! As challenging and scary as it was in the beginning, it all came together as the courses and clinicals progressed.

If you have any interest in learning about lasers National Laser Institute is it. I finished the 14 day course on the 23rd of January. and had a hard time leaving. The information is presented in an exceptional way by all instructors and the positive energy as soon as you walk in the door is such that I have never experienced before. Thank You for a wonderful experience. Will never be forgotten.

James Yoon, RN 57 of 360

National Laser Institute’s course was everything I expected and more. The staff was very helpful. To work and learn the most current laser technology and to lean the most current techniques gave me all the confidence I need to get out there and start applying in the ‘real world.’ Once again, great school. I would not choose another school if I had a chance to do it again!

John C. Friel, MD 61 of 360

Excellent hands-on learning experience and excellent exposure to these new skill sets.

Rose Berkic, RN 62 of 360

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 NLI Med Spa is 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 classes there in the future. Originally, I was looking at a different school, but I’m very glad I went to National Laser Institute.

Jennifer Allen 63 of 360
