Botox and Dermal Filler Training Courses for Nurses

Nursing is a vocation for most, but the long hours, low pay and high emotional cost can prove too much – if you’re starting to consider life away from nursing then a move into the aesthetics industry is a logical next step for many

Nursing professionals are perfectly placed to start as a Botox and dermal filler practitioner thanks to your natural, caring, patient focussed approach and medical knowledge. Learn more about why nurses make brilliant practitioners.

The world of facial aesthetics is already worth £2billion and with expert Botox and dermal filler training for Nurses, the Dr Hennessy Academy is ideally placed to help you take the next, lucrative step in your career.


Our aesthetics training for Nurses is quick, comprehensive and affordable!

Whether you’re just starting out with our Foundation Botox and dermal filler course or taking on some of more advanced aesthetics training, you’ll spend more time practising on real models at the Dr Hennessy Academy than you would elsewhere.

We blend a mix of clinic based and e-learning practices with plenty of hands-on practice with our real models to ensure you leave your training ready to treat patients safely and confidently.

You’ll also receive ongoing advice and support with the admin side of the business including how to run effective consultations and the legal side of things are covered as we provide you with templates for consent and safety policies.

Our relaxed way of teaching is tried and tested with many nurses, just like you, moving on from NHS or private care work to run successful aesthetics businesses.

Learning how to administer these non-surgical procedures and getting qualified is both quick and inexpensive. (Our Combined Botox and Dermal Filler Foundation Course only takes one day and is £795+VAT.)

A range of training courses to suit your needs

As a non-prescribing nurse, the skillset 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.

In fact, one of our trainers comes from a nursing background herself – Mrs Alisha Stonier, RGN, NP.

She works alongside our 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 courses are continually updated based on current research so that in addition to benefitting 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.

Advanced training – build on what you already know

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 can take you further, giving you a competitive edge and cover procedures including:

  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Scar correction
  • Brow lifting
  • Jawline definition

You can choose between our Advanced Aesthetic Training Course or our Advanced Cannula Training Course.

Or, if you would like to gain a unique understanding of how aesthetic treatments are best incorporated into a clinic, we run special observation evenings for past delegates that afford an insight into the way that Dr Hennessy BDS works.

We even offer bespoke one-to-one training. This is a course that can be completely tailored to your current level of knowledge and experience to ensure that you achieve your own, personal goals.

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
  • Lonsdale

This approval means that the nurses we train can start offering aesthetic treatments to their patients straight away – with no legal or administrative complications.

We give you a head-start in business

Apart from the medical side of aesthetic training, we also look at the commercial side of administering these treatments.

On 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.

What if I’m a non-prescribing nurse?

We offer details of prescribers to any non-prescribers that complete our courses.

In some cases, you will be given details of prescribers in your area or companies that can source prescribers for you.

For more information about any of our aesthetic training, or to book your place on a course today, give us a call on 01704 567557.

We look forward to hearing from you.
