Abstract

AbstractAesthetic nurses provide a myriad of services to a variety of people, in a number of ways. They must demonstrate to these people that they are up to date, competent and confident in the services provided. Ensuring standards and protecting those who use nursing services across the profession within the NHS, the voluntary and independent sectors lies in education and effective regulation, one aspect of regulation is the notion of continuing professional development (CPD). Patients have a right to expect the aesthetic nurses that advise and treat them to be up to date in their knowledge and skills and to be fit to practise. The majority of aesthetic nurses are compliant with the PREP standards, competent and confident; and PREP helps to assure this for the people they care for. This article reminds aesthetic nurses of their responsibilities to patients and their profession concerning Post Registration Education and Practice (PREP). The article also considers the issue of CPD, providing the reader with an example of a framework that can be used to identify and address CPD needs.
