First in Foot Care Education
Foot Canada Training has broken a lot of ground over the years. From when we first started teaching nursing foot care in 1993 to today, here is an overview of some of our firsts.
- FCN Theory and FCN Clinical courses are the FIRST courses in Canada to use a standardized, peer-reviewed curriculum.
Foot Canada Training is the FIRST to offer FCN courses online in Canada.
Foot Care Nurses across Canada can now take their careers to the next level by enrolling in the FIRST Online FCN Preceptor & Educator courses through Foot Canada Training.
"Art & Science of Nursing Foot Care: A Clinical Resource for Nurses in Canada (2017)" is the FIRST multi-authored, peer-reviewed textbook, and is currently the #1 textbook for foot care education across Canada.
Foot Canada Training's Executive Director and Director of Nursing, Cindy Lazenby R.N., was the FIRST Founding Chair & President of the CAFCN.
With our curriculum license, Foot Canada Training is the FIRST organization to make its FCN Clinical, FCN Clinical Refresher and Advanced Skills Workshop Curriculum available to independent Foot Care Nurse Educators, colleges and universities.*
*The Foot Canada Training Curriculum uses the The Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017) as Clinical Performance Standards and is compliant with the IPAC Canada Position Statement 2019 - "Point-of-use sterility of critical, reprocessed foot care instruments for every client". Please check with your provincial governing bodies for educator regulations or restrictions.
