Why chose Dr Hennessy for Botox courses for nurses?
- A range of aesthetic training courses to suit your needs
- As a non-prescribing nurse, the skills that you already have, and the techniques that you use daily, put you in a very strong position to learn how to administer aesthetic treatments.
- The training will be led by the founder and chief instructor, Dr Hennessy BDS, a dental surgeon who was one of the first dentists in the UK to be trained in the use of Botox and dermal fillers and now has over 20 years experience within the medical aesthetics industry.
- At the Academy, all of our Botox courses are continually updated based on current research so that in addition to benefiting from the team’s many years of combined experience, you will always be taught the latest techniques.
- Plus each of our aesthetic training courses has been certified for the appropriate number of CPD points.
Getting the right insurance
When it comes to insurance, we make it easy for nurses once they have completed our courses. All courses we provide have been approved by multiple insurers. The full list:
- Hamilton Fraser
- Enhance Insurance
This approval means that the nurses we train can start offering aesthetic treatments to their patients straight away – with no legal or administrative complications.
Advanced Botox courses for nurses
Build on what you already know, so if you’re a non-prescribing nurse already trained in some popular non-surgical treatments and you wish to learn more, then we also teach advanced techniques. Our advanced training courses and our other cosmetics courses can take you further, giving you a competitive edge and covering a whole range of Botox procedures.
Apart from the medical side of aesthetic training, we also look at the commercial side of administering these treatments. In our courses, we always dedicate a portion of the teaching time to advising our nurses on how to be commercially successful using the techniques that they have learnt with us. This means that from the moment you leave our academy, you will not only be completely confident in performing the treatments, but you will have a head-start in business and be ready to take full financial advantage of what is now a very lucrative market.
Freedom from NHS constraints
Moving from the NHS into the aesthetic industry as a nurse will look one of two ways:
You are a qualified prescriber and can open your own clinic, or You are not a qualified prescriber and will need to work with another clinic. Having your own clinic will be very different from working in the NHS. You will be self-employed and the owner of your own business. Knowing that you don’t have any more red-tape to work around is an incredibly freeing feeling. Working for another clinic will also be a very different feeling than working at the NHS. Bureaucracy, government cuts, and impossible deadlines will be a thing of the past. As a qualified nurse, you won’t struggle to find an employer. All aesthetic clinics understand the benefits of hiring nurses that already have medical training and experience developing communication and organisational skills by working with patients in the NHS.
