Hi does anyone know if you can self fund and get on the v300 course when just trained in Botox and fillers? The couple of university's I have spoke to require you to work for a year in it. This is such a hard way round to gain the experience and practise as you are tied to when the prescriber can do the consultation for you. I don't want to just do it once a month want to get lots of experience and practise in it.
Thanks all

Hi Mcmillsa, you can self fund and sign off all employer docs etc yourself. I did for my v300 at University of West of England ( Gloucester & Bristol), as i am work independently in aesthetics. Its not the university who sets down this guideline ( 1 year experience in speciality) its the NMC, so will be the same for every university. You can sign off yourself to say you have worked in aesthetic for 1 year ( when you have). Are you a member of the British Association of Cosmetic nurses (BACN). If not, maybe you should join, there is so much support and advice for nurses working independently in aesthetics. Good luck!.

Thanks Janey for reply. Can I ask before you did your V300 where did you work from I have a nurse prescriber who will see and do the consultations for me. I have also trained in peels, derma needling and laser. Not after making a fortune just enjoy this area of work its taking the plunge and getting on with it. Just wondered how nurses start off doing this. I will join the BACN. Thanks Sarah :)

Hi Sarah,
Im very fortunate financially, that i am able to work in aesthetics part time without other employment, I understand it is not the same for everyone. I have a treatment room at my house, where i work and also do a couple of monthly clinics in local salons. It does take time, sometimes years before nurses are able to give up there full time posts just to work in aesthetics. But worth it! Consider it as another part time job until you feel you have a client base that will allow you to work in the sector full-time. What part of the country do you live?

Hi Janey
I live in Lancashire and currently work for NHS direct 15 hours a week which is flexible where I can pick and choose my hours so have the time to try and start up part time. Did you do it from home then apply for the V300?
We are in the midst of extending our house which makes it a bit more difficult to do from home until its finished. Did you do a website etc to get the word out? Thanks for the helpful info. Sarah

Hi Sarah, Yes i did mine as working independently from home, i think as long as you have been working in aesthetics for a year (doesnt just mean injectables) you will qualify for your 1 years experience. You can sign everything else off yourself as you are your own boss. I have asked a few of my colleagues on BACN where aesthetic nurses are welcome around your area, and they have mentioned to try Edgehill in Ormskirk. Bolton and Liverpool universities. And yes i have a personal website, a Facebook page and advertise on What Clinic, which gives me quite a few referrals. Hope this helps Jane x

Yes you can self fund I am just at the end of my V300 and I have self funded as I am self employed (aesthetic nurse). I think you need to have a year or two in your line of work to be able to go on the. Course. If you live near essex why don't you try university of essex colchester branch they seem to be pretty relaxed. Good luck

hi, hope someone can give me a bit of advice, I live in n. ireland but due to the universities here not taking aesthetic nurses I have been forced to apply to a uni in scotland. I had a DMP sorted but my uni have said that because my DMP is a dentist she is not eligible, however she was a DMP in another scottish uni for another girl. I then contacted the uni that she had been DMP for but was told as I'm an independent aesthetic nurse and dont work for a company they wouldnt except me, (even though the girl I mentioned before did not work for a company), I have just hit so many brick walls, and time is running out to get another DMP, can anyone recommend a DMP, as am willing to travel, or has anyone came across anything like this before? Thankyou

Hi to everybody. I'm new to the forum and about to embark on the NISP course in Jan '14 at my local uni. I'm a community psych nurse specialising in early intervention in psychosis, so I work with individuals from the age of 14-35yo. As you might gather I'm not a proper nurse; unlike many many nurse prescribers who are predominantly general trained. I'm wondering if anybody else out there is about to begin the prescribing course and will be using their new found skills in mental health.
Anyway, enough about me and seasons greetings to all you NPs.

Hi There - I am also new on this forum and looking to do the V300 course. I have been working in my own business for 4 years independently in Aesthetics (Botox & Dermal Fillers) I currently work with a doctor for prescribing but it seems that I need to have a mentor - ie Doctor but I do not work at the same place as the Doctor who prescribes for me. I am looking to do the V300 couse at Hertfordshire University. Any advise is greatly recieved? Carole

Hello all.... does anyone know of a doctor who is willing to mentor nme through the NMP course. After a load of faffing about with application forms my doctor apparently does not meet the NMC criteria for a mentor...What a pain it has been. Why do they make it so difficult for us independant workers.
