Students from across British Columbia met in Nelson this summer to participate in the Onsite Foot Care Nurse Clinical course. This was the first time the course was offered in Nelson. Co-Educators Cindy Lazenby and Amy Veale received great feedback from students through anonymous surveys. Here are a few examples:

"We had a lot of practice on clients. I felt like it was set up to help the students succeed."

"Facilitators were very thorough"
