I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, there is much to be thankful for; I am thankful for the many friends and acquaintances that I have in this Association, the Board of Directors that I work with, and PRRI our management team. They make things much easier for all of us. More

As our new year begins with a few new faces on the Board of Directors, it is the perfect opportunity to begin a new feature of the newsletter. My hope is that we can get to know our members a little better. I will be contacting members for future issues to ask some questions, get their perspective and pearls and share these in the newsletter. If you’re itching to be the first to participate in future issues, send an email to me! More


10th Annual Aesthetic Symposium
April 12 – 14, 2012
Jacob K. Javits Convention Center
New York, NY

Co-Chair ISPAN National Convention and Scientific Sessions

Briefly Speaking...

  • The ISPAN 38th Annual Convention –Teamwork in Action, was indeed North America’s premier and most comprehensive plastic surgical meeting and educational program to date. There was rich programming and numerous educational opportunities available for each convention attendee, which only served to add extreme value across the board to the practice of our plastic surgery nursing profession.

This edition of "pearls" will focus on "New Orleans Pearls" gathered from colleagues, lecturers, and exhibitioners during the annual meeting. More


Haley Wood, MSN, WHNP, CPSN

When you spend your time away from your office and family to attend a professional conference, your goal is hopefully to return with at least one great clinical pearl or new technique. This year, I have to thank Leslie Fletcher, RN from Torrance, California for arming me with one new clinical pearl from the ISPAN Convention in New Orleans! More


Happy Holidays from the Plastic Surgical Nurses Certification Board! 2012 has been a busy time for the PSNCB as we have been working to develop the Certified Aesthetic Non-Surgical (CANS) Nurse Exam and bring to you in 2013. We plan to hold the pilot of the exam during the Aesthetic Meeting in New York in April with the first official certification given in October at the ISPAN Convention in San Diego. We will be releasing more details early in 2013 and will let all ISPAN know of any updates via email and the ISPAN and PSNCB website. More


Dear Miss Adventures,

I have not been a "plastic surgery" nurse for very long but my friends and family are already asking me for advice. Mostly, they want a referral to the very best plastic surgeon for this, that, and the other thing. The problem is I have no idea what that really means! More


Augmentation Stabilizer Garment Needed!

I am in search of an augmentation stabilizer garment that is one piece and has integrated vertical pieces that push the implants medially. I can only find bands that have pieces that Velcro into place. If anyone knows of a garment like the description, email Susan Lamp. Thanks!
