Foot Care Nurse Course Testimonials
Donna Duffield, RN
"I have found the education, information, contacts, and research skills I have acquired through your program invaluable! I plan to enroll in the Foot Care Educators course next year. I am currently planning a Community Based Foot Care Program. The mandate for the program is to provide on-site high risk foot screening, basic foot care, client/community based education, and prevention of lower limb complications secondary to Diabetes. This is my first foray into planning/implementing/consulting on programming...a lot of work, but I am confident that it will all be worth it once the program is up and running. I am just working on the final draft proposal to submit for funding...There is such an incredible need for standardization of education for foot care providers!! I am astonished at the diversity of education and skill level of those currently providing foot care!! Thank you for providing these incredible courses...I will most definitely be advocating for the… Foot Care Nurse courses."

"Thank you so much Cindy. You are always there for your new grads, and I hope every one that is going or will be going through your program will love and respect you for your knowledge, support and take full opportunity of each email you send out - as I have since I have graduated your program. Once again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done and continue to do for all of us."

"Hello Cindy. Firstly, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the opportunity to take part in this course. Your dedication to this specialty is simply amazing. I'm looking forward to receiving your new textbook and reviewing and keeping in touch as I acquire new skills. After having reflected on this past week's clinical, I can honestly say that I love being a FCN !!! And I have you and my facilitator to thank. This course was life changing. Can't wait to see my marks. I'll be applying for the RPNAO grant :) Sincerely (and already missing the clinical environment)".

"Well I just pushed through the online FCN Part 1 course in record time and I should be pretty proud of myself. Your course is really, really good. There is a lot of information to go through. Mind you, I have been keeping up with some continuing foot care education so I suppose that also helped me. I must say, this has definitely been an enriching learning experience for me nonetheless. I love all the resources and references you provided."

"I just completed the Advanced Foot Care Nurse theory course and I am writing to share my experience with Foot Canada, which has been entirely positive. From initial contact and ongoing communication the staff were always courteous, professional and helpful. I especially appreciated the great support I received when I reached out for help.The Foot Care Nurse theory course is excellent as well! The curriculum is comprehensive, it aligns with and emphasizes evidence-based practice and includes ample resources aligned with current best practices to support further learning and development. The course also aligns content with CAFCN’s competencies. I find the competency-based approach has been really helpful to help me prepare for the upcoming clinical course. Overall, I found this course and the staff have really set me up for success to become a competent Advanced and Diabetic Foot Care Nurse. Thank you so much Foot Canada!!"

Barbara Pound, RN
"I am enrolled in the Foot Canada Training - Theory program currently running. First, I must say that I am very impressed with the thoroughness of the program, it has far exceeded my expectations! This course has compelled me to examine areas of nursing that, admittedly I should have been more conscientious about, but was so caught up in the ‘clinicalness’ of, I did not devote the effort to areas like best practice, competencies, the business aspect of nursing and our relationship with FNIH. Thank you..."

"I've never taken courses online and it was hard to decide to take it. I can say it was a great experience and the right decision. Everything was clear and went smoothly. Questions that I had during the course were answered in a few hours. The textbook was very helpful, had good illustrations and a glossary I will use for a long time before I become familiar with all the terms."
