Policy - Limitations to Practice as a Foot Care Nurse

Last revision April 1, 2021.

The Online FCN Theory course offers foot care theoretical foundation to nurses. A FCN Clinical course provides the in-person clinical skills development and mentorship. Together, both types of courses are designed to prepare participants to function as a Foot Care Nurse within a health care team. 

It is the responsibility of each nurse to take clinical training as a new foot care nurse, and to keep their skills up todate as an experienced foot care nurse. Foot care nurses are to ensure they are working within their scope of practice by following the requirements of their provincial or territorial nursing governing body and national nursing foot care associations as outlined in related policies, competencies, guidelines, standards, acts and regulations.
