Why Nurses Should Train in Aesthetics

At Derma Medical, we have trained many nurses in this field wanting to create the lifestyle they have always dreamed of. Here are the top 6 benefits reported by nurses who have trained with us and are now working in this industry:

1) Higher Income

It’s well-known the private sector pays well. Income from aesthetic practice can far exceed that of the Australian healthcare system with significantly less time investment. Hour-for-hour as an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner (either self-employed or working for a clinic), you can expect to earn far more than you would as a Nurse. Due to the nature of this growing industry, it is genuinely possible to (more than) double your current salary by administering cosmetic injectable treatments on a regular basis.

Many of our trainees have gone on to open their very own successful practices, and several have left their hospital jobs in the process! As mentioned above, this is the only business where nurses and midwives can earn high profitability with minimal start-up capital. The increased income generated in Aesthetics has allowed many nurses and midwives to reduce working hours, free-up more time and pay back several large debts earlier.

2) Better Quality of Life

In this industry, nurses have full control of their own work/life balance. The flexibility of this career enables those to choose when and how often they would like to work (and earn). Many of the nurses and midwives we have trained have reported enjoying a much better quality of life- working more sociable hours with happier, more satisfied patients. In comparison to their hospital jobs, many have also highlighted the increased job satisfaction that results from having more autonomy in decision-making in a less pressured environment.

3) Develop New Clinical Skills

Nurses are very well suited to this field because they have good transferable skills. Many nurses and midwives are already practically trained in minor procedures- such as venepuncture and cannulation. They are also very experienced at drawing up and administering injections frequently, as well as following hygiene protocols- all pertinent skills when dealing with cosmetic injectables. Injectables and Dermal filler injectables are simple extensions of these minimally invasive procedures. Although mainly cosmetic, some injectables can be used for medical use such as treatments of hyperhidrosis and bruxism. Many nurses and midwives that we have trained report it as a great addition to their already vast CV of clinical skills, and with newer minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures being discovered, now is a great time to be investing in these acquired skills.

4) Keeping Options Open

We have seen many nurses and midwives frustrated with the current state of the Us healthcare system, in particular, lack of autonomy, reduced time allocated to patient care, too many targets and deadlines to meet and too high a demand on services to meet for service providers available. Despite this, however, more and more nurses and midwives feel the need to do more shifts to make ends meet. 

At Derma Medical, we have helped many Nurses seek alternative or additional, medical-related routes of employment while still utilising their clinical skills. For those already in training or in established practice, aesthetic work can be taken on alongside their existing job. Several of our dental delegates undertake private aesthetic work at weekends, evenings or annual leave with large cosmetic corporates. After completion of aesthetic training, nurses have the ability and freedom to open their own cosmetic company or work for an existing one.
