I understand you can get into the aesthetics industry with and without a nursing degree but being a nurse going into the industry you will have more respect being in the medical industry and you can take part in the v300 prescribing course. In currently in the first year of my nursing degree and am willing to do the 3 years to be able to get into the aesthetics industry. But since researching it further I have read that I have to then complete 3 years as a registered nurse after graduating, is that mandatory or is that only advised? If you don’t complete them 3 years after graduating would you not be able to complete the prescribing course? I am committed to completing the 3 years at uni but since finding out I may have to then do another 3 years in the nursing field I’m hesitant to carry on my nursing course as my end goal is aesthetics and know how much of a commitment nursing can be.

Depends on the uni offering the V300. Some uni’s require 36months experience, others less. Either way some experience is usually advised.
Usually your employer supports you through extra training such as the V300

To add to what paub has already said, you'll also hold more clinical credibility as a practitioner if you have experience as a nurse. A lot of nurses who've gone into aesthetics use their clinical experience as a selling point.
