In collaboration with Laura Collins, an ANP with an extensive dermatological background, The Elite Nurse Practitioner is proud to announce The Dermatology and Cosmetic Skin Care Course! This is the DEFINITIVE GUIDE to dermatology for the nurse practitioner! Plus, we are including a plethora of actionable cosmetic skin care topics to sweeten the course ūüėä

This course is designed for the nurse practitioner who is looking for the training to empower them to evaluate, diagnose, and treat 90% of the dermatological complaints you would ever see in clinical practice. It is also for the nurse practitioner who is wanting to integrate cosmetic skin care into their practice to increase their service and product offerings, which ultimately will increase your revenue!

Dermatology and cosmetic skin care are an in demand and growing service line. The skin care and dermatology industries are a multi-billionaire dollar market and they continue to grow year by year. In addition, 1 in 3 patients will have a dermatological ailment at any given time plus the population is aging and is wanting to look younger more than ever before. So, what does this mean for the astute nurse practitioner entrepreneur? A fantastic practice opportunity!

Thousands of patients are in need of quality and affordable dermatological care RIGHT NOW. Standard dermatology practices often times have multi-month waiting lists and patients become increasingly frustrated that they have to continue to live life with unhealthy appearing skin that frequently is symptomatic as well. Acne, eczema, melasma, and a variety of other skin disorders plague the appearance of countless individuals in our society. Nurse practitioners need to be stepping up to the plate and assisting patients with their dermatological needs. Well, this is exactly what this course will help the nurse practitioner do!

In addition, this course will cover dozens of cosmetic skin care services and products to help increase your practices offerings which will result in increased revenue streams! Patients are actively seeking compounded topical anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, acne, melasma, and moisturizing products. We cover all of these and more! We also cover how to provide these products via asynchronous telemedicine visits to help you build a passive income stream from your practice’s website.

This course would be perfect for the nurse practitioner interested in simply integrating dermatological and cosmetic skin care services into their established practice or for the nurse practitioner wanting to open a stand-alone skin care clinic that could be done full time. ­If you wanted to build a high-end cosmetic skin care clinic, then adding the products discussed in this course, providing general dermatological consultations, and providing aesthetic services would make for an amazing full-service skin care practice! Ultimately, it is up to you!

This course is designed to provide the nurse practitioner who has ZERO experience in dermatology and cosmetic skin care the necessary knowledge to get started with this growing field! This course provides you all the information you need to treat 90% of the dermatological complaints you would ever see in practice.

Kimberly, L., FNP: This was a fantastic course about dermatology! Laura has done a FANTASTIC job describing the most common dermatological conditions a nurse practitioner will see. The cosmetic section and downloadable guides were a nice add on. Thanks Elite NP!


Osake, L., NP: I loved this course. This was a well produced and thought provoking lecture. Laura and Justin have done a spectacular job putting together everything a nurse practitioner would need to know about dermatology and cosmetic skin care medications/products. I feel very confident now treating even advanced acne in my patients. I would highly recommend this course to any nurse practitioner looking to learn about general and cosmetic dermatology.


Jason Michaels, NP: Another solid Elite Nurse Practitioner course! I recently took the Aesthetics and Botox course and the additional information provided in the dermatology course makes for a great combination. My wife and I are implementing the compounded cosmetic skin care products into our Med Spa immediately. I am hopeful it will increase our practices revenue as Justin describes in the course. Thanks the information!

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!


Can I do this via telemedicine?

Yes you can. Outside of dermatological procedures and doing a thorough in person skin examination, many simple dermatological complaints, such as acne or melasma, can be done via telemedicine. Also, providing cosmetic skin care products that patients can purchase directly off your website makes for a great passive income source!


Do I need to have a specialized certification to provide dermatological or cosmetic skin care services?

No! Providing dermatological services falls into the scope of any nurse practitioner. There is no certification or specialized license required to provide the services and products described in this course.


Will this course teach me how to build dermatology or cosmetic skin care clinic from scratch?

YES! The course goes over all the aspects you need to know to start your own practice. We cover everything from supply ordering, compounding pharmacies, forming an LLC, marketing, and much more!


Will I be prepared to provide dermatological consultations after taking this course?

YES! This course covers 90% of what you would ever see in practice. The other 10% of conditions would be very advanced clinical illness or rare conditions that would need to be referred to a dermatologist. Otherwise, a nurse practitioner should be able to walk away from this course confident in the management of most dermatological conditions.


What cosmetic skin care services does this course cover?

This course covers the foundational knowledge you need to implement cosmetic skin care into your practice. We cover the most in-demand and commonly used RX and Non-RX cosmetic skin care products on the market. Additionally, the variety of cosmetic skin care procedures that are available to the nurse practitioner are discussed for those looking for more services/ideas to implement into their practice.


Will this course go over how to market a dermatology and cosmetic skin care 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, would this course benefit me?

Definitely! Having the knowledge to treat your patients dermatological conditions will increase patient satisfaction tremendously. Additionally, integrating cosmetic skin care products into your practice will increase your revenue!


Is having a DEA number necessary?

Nope, nothing we discuss is considered a controlled substance. The only reasons you would need a DEA is if you utilized a compounded product with a controlled substance in it, but that is generally not applicable to dermatology or cosmetic skin care.


Will this offer CME?

Unfortunately it will not at this time. I do not think it is fair that our credentialing agencies charge upwards of $10,000 to certify medical education. If I was to do this, I would have to pass along the costs to my readers. My goal is to provide affordable products, not overpriced courses that are $1,000 or more in price. The mission of The Elite NP is to help you break free, not charge ridiculous prices for CME.


Will this course provide a certificate of completion?

Yes! A certificate is issued at the end of the course for you to submit for reimbursement and provide your malpractice carrier.

The Dermatology and Cosmetic Skin Care Course

The Elite Nurse Practitioner guide on how to integrate dermatology and cosmetic skin care into your practice

Hi, I'm Justin Allan MSN FNP



I am the owner and author of The Elite Nurse Practitioner, one of the hottest blogs for nurse practitioners who want to break free from the shackles of modern healthcare.

I have been practicing as an NP for 7 years. I have worked all over the country and in many different settings. I became sick of working for others and not earning what I knew what was possible and fair. So, I decided to venture out on my own.

I now own multiple successful side practices and businesses as an NP. My goal is to share the knowledge I have learned and developed to my fellow NP colleagues so you can reach a level of success that very few NPs will ever achieve. It is possible to build profitable practices and businesses as a nurse practitioner! Do not let anyone else tell you otherwise!
