Leadership

We aim to be the leading source of Foot Care Nurse education in Canada. Following the leadership of Foot Canada Training’s Founding President and Director of Nursing, 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 almost 30 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 offer access to our clinical and workshop curriculum to education providers across Canada.
