A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
A major upgrade of the BACN website is taking place throughout May, with a launch date scheduled for the end of the month. After listening to feedback, the members’ area of the website will be streamlined and made as accessible as possible, along with a dedicated CPD area for revalidation purposes, more resources, webinars, complications support, and an updated practitioner finder. There will be a number of other benefits added to the members’ area, and the BACN website will be fully optimised for mobile use. Members will be provided with online tutorials for how to use the new website, with a website roadshow being rolled out at the Autumn regional meetings.
It was great to see so many members attend the first round of regional meetings in April, with Cardiff, Belfast and Glasgow having strong attendance, and with provoking and supportive peer networking. The foundation of what the BACN is all about is support, and the regional meetings are an ideal place to get the latest updates from BACN partners, along with meeting other members in the region. Throughout May, Tara Glover, events manager, will be travelling the country to meet members and work with BACN Regional Leaders to run events with a whole host of exciting agendas. Meetings are still available to book onto via the BACN Events page.
Members have renewed their membership in record time this year, and it is exciting to see so many nurses who wish to remain part of the largest professional association for aesthetic nurses in the UK. Last reminders will be sent out throughout the month, along with calls to gain feedback about the year with the BACN and as a final push for any members who need to renew!
