Foot Canada Training (formerly Foot Care Kingston) offers Foot Care Nurse courses and workshops specially designed for nurses (RN’s, NP’s, RPN’s & LPN’s) new to foot care and for experienced Foot Care Nurses who wish to update their knowledge and skills. The training and professional development opportunities we offer are based on current Best Practice Guidelines and evidence-based practice, including the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses’ National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada( 2017).
Our expertise has been sought out to deliver customized training to post-secondary institutions, private organizations and government agencies across all levels. We are strongly invested in fostering networking and continuing education among foot care professionals and to meet this commitment, we regularly customize and upgrade our training and professional development offerings for today's busy Canadian nurses who require flexible and user-friendly continuing education options.
Foot Canada Training's Director and owner, Cindy Lazenby and her associates published the Art & Science of Foot Care: A Clinical Resource for Nurses in Canada (2017) textbook. This textbook is an Educator and student resource used for our Foot Care Nurse course as well as by multiple organizations across Canada delivering their own independent courses.

Leadership - We aim to be the leading source of Foot Care Nurse education in Canada. Following the leadership of Foot Canada Training's owner and director, Cindy Lazenby, also a founding member of the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses, we will continue to be an active advocate in the nursing foot care community for standardized Foot Care Nurse education based on best practices.
Collaboration - We believe in the importance of local and accessible training opportunities and working together with other education providers who share our goal of developing a strong and knowledgeable nursing foot care community.
Quality - As a provider of nursing foot care education since 1993, Foot Canada Training's curriculum not only reflects our experience gained from over 20 years of teaching in this growing field, but is a product of ongoing collaboration with experts in the foot care community, peer-review and regular updates to keep current with best practices.
Accessibility and Standardization - All nurses should have access to the same level of quality foot care training opportunities, regardless of where they live. To make this possible, a significant portion of the training Foot Canada Training offers is online. We also host a travelling annual conference and offer access to our clinical and workshop curriculum to education providers across Canada.
