Frequently Asked Questions
Will I have unlimited access to this course?
Absolutely! You can access this course however many times you want for however long you want! All Elite Nurse Practitioner Courses are pre-recorded and accessible indefinitely!
Do I have to have a specialized certification for Botox or Aesthetics?
No! There is no certification or license required outside of your nursing licensure. As long as you can prescribe and perform procedures, then you can provide aesthetic services and Botox. Did you know that even some dentists are providing Botox?!
Additionally, most malpractice companies will require that you obtain a certificate of completion in terms of aesthetics training, and this course meets that requirement with the certificate rewarded once you complete the course.
Will this course teach me how to build an Aesthetics Practice from scratch?
YES! The course goes over all the aspects you need to know to get started with an aesthetics practice. We cover everything from supply ordering, setting up medication accounts, forming an LLC, marketing, and much more!
Will I be prepared to do injections after this course?
In my opinion, yes you will be, but this ultimately depends on your comfort level, skill level, experience, and understanding of facial anatomy. I have started giving Botox injections to my men's health patients from the video training alone. The training videos with the course and the step by step instructions are easy to follow. Many of these injections are VERY simple to perform, where as others are more advanced. Again, it comes down to your comfort level.
Cassie will also have a hands-on training option for those looking for additional in-person training. Additionally, many of the medication suppliers (Allergan for Botox for example) will provide you free hands on training after you order medication from them.
Is this an expensive practice to start?
I would rank it as a moderate cost practice to start. You should be able to get a nice aesthetics practice up and running for approximately $7,500-$10,000. If you want to do this via a house call platform, then your expenses would be even lower!
Will this course go over how to market an Aesthetics Practice?
Absolutely! You must get the word out about your clinic if you want to get busy! Word of mouth is fine, but it can take a long time for that to happen! You must market your practice if you want to grow and make money quickly! Remember, marketing is the number one function of your practice! Therefore it is critical to market appropriately and we will cover the marketing foundations with you.
I already own a practice, can I just add Botox and aesthetic services to it?
Yes! If you work for a primary care practice or own your own practice, such as a wellness or weight loss clinic, then implementing aesthetic services into it could significantly increase your patient volume and revenue!
Is having a DEA number necessary?
If you plan on prescribing a controlled substance, than yes! Is it required? No... Botox is not a controlled substance.
Are cosmetic Botox injections FDA approved?
The FDA has approved three areas for Botox injections: forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow's feet. Anything else is actually considered "off label", but there is little to worry about as utilizing Botox on different areas of the face is considered an industry standard.
Will this offer CME?
YES! This course offers 9 CE hours. The Elite Nurse Practitioner is credentialed as an organization that can provide CEU through the ANCC. CEU awarded through The Elite Nurse Practitioner applies to ANCC, AANP, and all boards of nursing!
Will this course provide a certificate of completion?
Yes! A certificate is issued at the end of the course that will show the CEU hours and your completion of this course. You can also use this to submit for reimbursement and provide your malpractice carrier.
