A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
After last year’s success, the BACN Autumn Aesthetic Conference 2019 will be held once more at Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham. It will feature a masterclass day held on Thursday November 7 with a networking lunch and sessions for those newer to aesthetics, as well as advanced masterclasses for longer-standing members. The main conference and exhibition day will take place on Friday November 8, with expert speakers, educational content, and a chance for aesthetic nurses to be brought together. Our first speaker to be announced is Dr Lee Walker, who will be providing his expertise on the main stage to all delegates. Hotel packages will be made available, with exclusive first access to Full Members. Both the masterclass day and main conference day can be booked from May.
Thanks to all members who have renewed their BACN membership. Membership packs and certificates have gone out to all members who renewed early, and there will be no delay in booking onto meetings or using BACN services. For those who have yet to renew, it has never been easier. Just log into your member’s area and follow the instructions through there, or get in touch with Gareth Lewis, Membership and Marketing Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The BACN Education and Training Committee met on March 25 to work on BACN standards and the current Competency Framework. The committee is dedicated to ensuring BACN resources are up-to-date and in-line with NMC Codes of Practice, along with working on our target to make aesthetic nursing a specialism within the NMC registration.
This month the BACN is holding meetings in Cardiff, Belfast and Glasgow, with other meetings taking place throughout the UK in May. Full agendas, including sponsors and information regarding venues and networking opportunities can be found on the BACN website’s events page.
