This program was specifically designed for Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses to have the skill set, critical thinking, and competency to utilize their aesthetic toolbox (Botox and Fillers) and be successful in their practice after they leave our program. The prerequisite to enrolling in this course is Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Filler – Basics Techniques.
ADVANCED TECHNIQUES COURSE INCLUDES:
Part 1: Pre-course online material
Prior to accessing an online portal, nurses will be provided with a pre-course material that will enable them to begin to engage with some of the big educational ideas and help them understand better how to manage and/or avoid certain complications while injecting soft tissue fillers and Botulinum Toxin Type A.
Part 2: Theoretical component hosted by experienced instructors and physicians.
An immersive and interactive online training program with our team of experienced injectors. Nurses will learn how to fully assess the face and understand the cause of volume loss and wrinkles, not the symptoms.
Nurses’ class outline will be as follows:
* Full Assessment of the Face
* The Cause of Volume Loss and Wrinkles
* Art of Facial Sculpting
* Management of Complications
* Recognition of Adverse Effects
Part 3: Online Live Question and Answer and Quiz before Practical Component:
The day before the arrival for a hands-on component, nurses will be able to access a Q&A session with the instructor, through which they will be able to engage with other students and clarify material directly with the instructors. After each section respectively, nurses are required to complete a quiz for sections 2, 4, 5, and 6. ALL Quizzes MUST be completed by 11:59 the night before the in-class training. Quizzes MUST be completed with a passing grade of 75% or higher. Students who fail to achieve a passing grade (75%) will be asked to retake the quiz until a passing grade is achieved.
Part 4: 2 Full Days of Hands-on Practice (over 15 hours)
