Nursing to Esthetics

What are the options for ADNs, BSNs, and MSNs?

The path from nursing to esthetics is a smart transition for those wishing to attain specialized training in medical-grade cosmetic services. A cosmetic nurse, also known as an aesthetic nurse, is a nurse who specializes in aesthetic and cosmetic services like laser skin and hair treatments, liposuction, tattoo removal, CoolSculpting, and aesthetic surgery.

Esthetician Certification
Through the years, New Age Spa Institute has been the home for many nurses in the full 750-hours Esthetics program. There is nothing more exciting to us than to watch our alumni land their dream jobs.
Job Opportunities
Some may believe that it’s good enough to only train for clinical aesthetics, but many of our own graduates have found it far easier to attain their dream job through dual licensing. It’s an investment that will lead you one step closer to a more independent life.

Become a Cosmetic Nurse! Why make the switch to aesthetics nursing?

No Crazy Work Schedules
Typically, registered nurses have unpredictable schedules due to medical emergencies or adverse reactions to treatments. Aesthetic nurses enjoy the freedom of working regular hours with no night shifts.
Less Stressful Environment
Cosmetic nurses can see improvements their treatment provides and observe the boost of confidence patients get from achieving their individual aesthetic goals.
Build Long-Term Relationships
Aesthetic nurses validate patient’s cosmetic worries and concerns. They can improve their physical and psychological quality of life on a more immediate scale. The same patients may return for maintenance or inquire about more treatments, thus breeding patient loyalty.

Dermatology Offices
Plastic surgery Offices

Aesthetic nurses often help plastic surgeons and dermatologists with cosmetic surgery, provide pre-and post-operative care, and medically screening patients before procedures.
