A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
Throughout September, the BACN will be traveling the country for regional meetings across the UK. One piece of feedback acquired from earlier meetings was the amount of peer-to-peer reviews allocated within agendas. BACN events manager, Tara Glover, has therefore increased the amount of time during the day for these vital and invaluable sessions to take place. As the industry changes at such a rapid rate, sharing experiences with products, patients and in practice has never been more important, and bringing together knowledge and support is really what the BACN is all about. Whether you are new to aesthetics and are looking to make some like-minded friends, or if you are an experienced practitioner who is keen to share knowledge and experience, these sessions are a safe space for open discussion and peer-to-peer learning.

The BACN/Church Pharmacy Bursary Programme has launched and we are now taking applications for those looking for financial support to study the V300 Independent Prescribing qualification, or for those who are looking at undertaking innovative research within the study of aesthetics. Application processes and further details surrounding the programme can be found on the education section of the BACN website.
The BACN has an active social media presence and it’s a fantastic opportunity for members to showcase themselves as members of the largest association for aesthetic nurses in the UK. We are looking for members who want to promote themselves and offer insight into what it’s like to be a BACN member and a nurse working in aesthetics. If you are interested and want to find out more, drop an email to Gareth Lewis, BACN membership and marketing manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
