BACN Competency Framework

The Framework recognises the specialist and evolving nature of aesthetic nursing and the need to provide clear and consistent guidance for practitioners that will help them to identify and develop competence.  In particular, the framework acknowledges that aesthetic nurses require specific, specialist knowledge and skills at different levels of practice.  Moreover, the framework advocates the need to establish and maintain appropriate standards of education, training and practice to ensure nurses in aesthetic medicine possess the requisite knowledge, understanding and skills to provide professional and ethical treatment and care to patients, according to their level of competence.
