In our moments of deepest sorrow and utmost joy, in times of peace and of war, few professions could be said to touch our lives in a way that compares to nursing. Florence Nightingale – ‘The Lady with the Lamp’ – showed us the very model of the modern nurse and in 1860 set up the world’s first secular nursing school at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. Since then, this quintessentially caregiving profession has grown and diversified – giving us community nurses, family nurses, paediatric and geriatric nurses, and myriad specialisms besides – to keep us healthy and happy in feeling and in fact. In more recent years, aesthetic nurses have begun to help patients improve their wellbeing through cosmetic interventions. This is where Acquisition Aesthetics comes in.
We offer a selection of cosmetic courses for nurses looking to expand into the use of Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) and dermal fillers: our foundation Botox® and dermal fillers course is perfect for nurses new to the specialism and provides all the theory and technical training needed for nurses to begin their aesthetic practice immediately; those seeking to upgrade their skills and knowledge can take the advanced dermal fillers and Botox® training course (our most popular programme) to improve the breadth and depth of their expertise; a combined cosmetic course includes training both at foundation and advanced levels – at a reduced cost compared with the two cosmetic courses taken separately.
