About Us

Representing NZ’s cosmetic appearance nursing professionals

CANN was founded in 2016 by leading Cosmetic Appearance nurses and trainers in NZ and has grown from strength to strength.

CANN nurses are all professionally qualified and trained and follow CANN’s “best practice standards”
developed by nurses and nurse educators with many years experience in the cosmetic appearance
industry. Our network of cosmetic nursing professionals allows us to share the latest knowledge,
training, and techniques to ensure the highest levels of patient care and safety. To check if your nurse is a member of CANN, head to our nurse directory.

CANN injectors follow the highest standards of practice in cosmetic injectables. To be a member and accredited nurses must have the highest levels of education, safety standards, and undergo auditing. This ensures the best outcomes and safer treatments for clients.
