Medical Spa Business Forum > Where to start???

I am a licensed esthetician and a LPN, im looking to go into business for myself running a small spa that also offers injectables. I am planning on taking an injectors course that is desiged for nurses and doctors, but was wondering do I need to become an RN to achieve this goal of having my own spa? I am tapped out on the idea of going back to school as I would have to start totally at the beginning. Any suggestions? I know that I would have to find a medical director for my small business but is me being an LVN a problem???

Become an NP! I know it's a pain but it's going to save you so much money and headache in the long run. Trust me...you'll be happy you did it.

Every state has very specific guidelines regarding the scope of practice for RN/LVN/NP and who can open and operate a medical spa. If you reach out to I may be able to offer some state specific insight. Just FYI- while every NP has added authority- not all states recognize what is called "Full Practice" so depending on the state you may or may not be able to function independently.
