As Nurse Practitioners in Ontario gather for a virtual convention, we applaud the NPAO for promoting independent practices for nurses. We are proud to train NPs and nursing leaders like Dawn Tymianski and Claudia Mariano in medical aesthetics.

We’ve discovered that many Nurse Practitioners are considering a new career in medical aesthetics. And why not?
