The British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN) has launched a new bursary programme that will come into place in January.
The programme is supported by UK distributor Church Pharmacy and was announced at the BACN Autumn Aesthetic Conference held in Birmingham in November.
The BACN and Church Pharmacy bursary scheme will offer financial support to BACN members wishing to undertake a broad range of education, CPD and specialist training.
Sharon Bennett, BACN chair and nurse prescriber said, “We have spoken for a number of years about developing a bursary scheme for our members and with the support of Church Pharmacy we are now able to do this. The BACN has had a longstanding relationship with Church Pharmacy so we are delighted we can announce this partnership.”
Zain Bhojani, managing director of Church Pharmacy added, “A huge part of our business involves aesthetic nurses, and this is another way in which we as a company are showing our continuing commitment to nurses working in aesthetics. We have supported the BACN for many years and are delighted to be the BACN’s partner in such a super scheme.”
The bursary programme will be overseen by the new Education and Training Committee, which the BACN hopes to implement soon.
