BACN Updates

A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses


The BACN values the importance of continual professional development, and has worked with training companies in the past to offer courses which provide members with accessible learning that is in line with the BACN’s ethos of patient safety and support of aesthetic nurses. Previously, the BACN, in conjunction with other companies, has offered facial anatomy courses which involve cadaveric dissection. In September and December, the BACN will once more be supplying these opportunities with Oculo-Facial Aesthetic Academy (OFAA) under Miss Sabrina Shah-Desai in London, and La Belle Forme Training under Mr Taimur Shoaib in Glasgow. These courses provide a detailed analysis of facial anatomy, and allow BACN nurses to practise various injection techniques within a safe environment.

These courses are offered to BACN members at a highly discounted rate, with the hope that members who have not the financial capabilities otherwise are able to attend a day that provides a vital and unique understanding of facial anatomy and injection. Please contact Gareth Lewis at for more info.


The BACN Autumn Aesthetic Conference 2019 on November 7 and 8 is now open for booking on the BACN website. Members are encouraged to book their space as last year sold out before the event took place. This year there will be a full agenda of expert presentations, demonstrations, and wide networking opportunities with exhibitors and other BACN nurses. More information can be found by going to the events page on the BACN website.
