Foot Care Nurse Clinical Training
Nurses who have completed the theoretical portion of their training are required to complete hands-on clinical training before being able to work as a Foot Care Nurse. It is recommended that nurses research opportunities to complete their clinical training prior to commencing the FCN Theory Course.
There are many education providers across the country, including Foot Care Nurse Educators, Colleges, and Health Agencies, who have purchased Foot Canada Training’s Curriculum License, and now offer our courses and workshops in various locations and provinces. Please refer to the map and list below for a current listing of Foot Canada Training Licensed Education Providers. FCT Licensed Education Providers have access to course curriculum including, but not limited to: Clinical courses for new Foot Care Nurses, Clinical Refresher courses for experienced Foot Care Nurses, and Advanced Skills Workshops. These education providers operate independently and must be contacted directly for an accurate course calendar.
While it is not mandatory for FCN Theory graduates to choose to do their clinical training with one of these Licensed Education Providers, nurses are responsible for choosing an education provider who will provide them with the skills required to practice foot care safely and autonomously, according to the regulations of their provincial nursing licensing body. Foot Canada Training recommends that if it is not possible to register with a Licensed Education Provider, nurses should find an education provider whose courses adhere to the CAFCN National Competencies (2017) and the IPAC position statement (2019).
The following education providers have a license to access and teach Foot Canada Training's Curriculum for the Onsite Foot Care Nurse Clinical course, the Onsite Foot Care Nurse Clinical Refresher course and Advanced Foot Care Nurse Skills Workshops.
