Online Foot Care Nurse Educator Course

2021 FCN Educator Course Dates



The Online Foot Care Nurse Educator (FCNEd) course introduces the basics of adult learning theory (including assessment and teaching principles) and explores the practical skills necessary to teach a Foot Care Nurse course - lesson planning, presentation methods and technology, as well as health and safety. The curriculum integrates current Best Practice Guidelines and evidence-based practices, including the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses’ National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017) and the WHO Nurse Educator Core Competencies (2016)

The FCNEd course is offered online and consists of six sections, each including an Assignment and a multiple-choice Quiz. It is estimated that each section, including the required reading, Assignment and Quiz, takes 7 hours to complete. The course also includes a final project, which is estimated to take 30 hours to complete.  

The FCNEd course is to be completed at the student’s own pace. However, the Sections are to be completed in the order provided. 

Prior to registering for the FCNEd course, all prospective students are encouraged to read the FCNEd Course Outline for information on course prerequisites and complete course details.
