Anti-Wrinkle and Dermal Fillers Training fro Nurses

Although nurses throughout Australia have reported high levels of job satisfaction, the trials of the last year have had a cost; with many nursing staff reporting extreme stress levels, risk of burnout from long and unsociable hours, and increased feelings of anxiety and depression; alongside dissatisfaction with pay that is often not in line with the cost of living in Australia’s cities. Training in medical aesthetics has become increasingly popular amongst nurses not only in Australia but worldwide; as nurses find careers in aesthetic injectables to not only be more lucrative but also just as fulfilling as traditional nursing.


Why Nurses should train in cosmetic injectables:

With a wealth of experience in working closely with patients, nurses are perfectly placed for success in the aesthetics industry, because:

Nurses have a variety of experience in minor procedures such as blood draws and cannula placement.

Nurses are skilled injectors used to administering to a variety of patients.

Nurses have experience in working directly with patients.

Nurses are accustomed to handling complications in a range of settings, whether in hospitals, medical practices, or in the community

Nurses are accustomed to working with patients post-treatment.

Benefits for Nurses

Although there is an initial cost to training in aesthetic injectables, the benefits of this training can be vast. MATA graduates from nursing have reported that training in anti-wrinkle and dermal fillers has:

Increased their earning potential, to the point where some have left traditional nursing all together to focus solely on aesthetic practice.

Given them a level of independence in their work in a less stressful environment.

Allowed them to spend a greater amount of one-on-one time with clients, which is often impossible in traditional nursing.

Given them the skills they need to work in established aesthetic clinics or even start their own businesses.

Provided a better work / life balance as the need to work long or antisocial hours decreases.
