From next year nurses will be able to undertake the first nationally recognised higher education qualification in cosmetic medicine.

The graduate diploma in aesthetic medicine will train nurses and other healthcare professionals in the use of cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and chemical denervation.

Developed by the University of Greenwich and the RCN, the course will give an in depth understanding of anatomy, physiology and skin care, and the psychological and social impact of treatments on clients.

Students will take practical assessments at the University of Greenwich but the theoretical component will be taught via e-learning.

Nurses will be able to start the core modules, fundamentals of effective practice and skin care, in January. Specialist modules such as chemical denervation and dermal fillers are due to start next September.
