Botox Training

training botoxWe say this on behalf of all of us: you’ve given your fair share of enemas. You’ve also inserted enough catheters, cleaned enough vomit out of your hair, manually handled enough impactions, and watched enough pressure ulcers ooze. As a nurse you battle skin folds and screaming patients. Your scrubs are smattered with unidentifiable biohazards most of the time and you leave work covered in skin flakes; wound care and all that seeps into your life. If you’re not grossed out by all of the above, you are most certainly a nurse. If you are a nurse and are grossed out anyway, it’s time to try Botox training.

(Consequently, nursing burnout is real for a reason).

It goes without saying that a career change is certainly in order.

Why Botox training?

(Please reference the initial paragraph…)

You’re not likely to be asked to dig anything out of anywhere as a cosmetic nurse. Similarly, you undoubtedly won’t be asked to obtain sputum or stool samples. The closest you’ll get to folds of any kind will be in the form of breakroom croissants.

Nope. Instead, you’ll be a certified practitioner in a clean, relatively calm environment. Your pressed scrubs will remain fresh and your sanity intact as you go through the exciting motions of your new career.

Botox training is the right route if you’re ready for a change of pace. If you’ve worked one too many nights or short-staffed one too many times in the hospital, you’ve come to the right place.

Who can get Botox training?

Not just anyone can administer highly regulated cosmetic injectables. The practice is actually reserved for licensed medical professionals that are required to take and pass Botox certification. Registered nurses, physicians, physician assistants, and advanced practice nurses are among those eligible for taking Botox training. Though the rules are different wherever you go (thus you should always check with regulations where you live and work) it is an industry standard that only medical professionals be allowed to dispense Botox and other cosmetic injectables.

What do Botox nurses do?

Botox nurses (also commonly called aesthetic nurses) work to help their patients feel their best in a way different from their peers employed by hospitals and clinics. Instead of focusing on disease processes and illness, they specialize in cosmetic procedures. Essentially, they pair their medical background with specialized training in cosmetic procedures to administer injectables, laser treatments, and other desired services.

Hence, the lack of stress. They don’t confront death and pain on daily basis. In its place they make their clients happier and boost their confidence with the life changing treatments that they administer.

Can you imagine delivering smiles and relief instead of bad news? It may sound like an impossible dream, but it isn’t. The work of a cosmetic nurse is rewarding in so many ways.

Botox nurses administer highly commercial services such as Botox (hence the Botox training), dermal fillers, and laser treatments. As experts on skin and skin interactions, they assess clients and give them well-informed, detailed consultations. In the same vein, they tailor treatments for a particular client’s needs and desires.

Where do nurses work after Botox training?

Another great thing about becoming a cosmetic nurse, is that there are jobs aplenty. Botox nurses work in niche boutiques, medical spas, physicians’ offices, day spas, dermatologists’ offices, laser clinics, and fitness facilities. Others can be found in plastic surgeons’ offices as well. In short, cosmetic nurses work wherever there is need and demand for cosmetic injectables such as Botox and fillers.

How difficult is Botox training?

The excellent news is that Botox training isn’t that difficult. As a nurse, you’ve passed state boards, you can certainly handle Botox training.
