Supporting Documents

  • Professional Reference - If wanting to be considered for this discount on the basis of being an experienced Foot Care Nurse, applicants are required to have 750 hours of nursing foot care practice in the past 5 years.

    The applicant may have more than one professional reference complete this form if each reference can only validate a portion of the total years of nursing experience or total hours of nursing foot care required. For example, if 300 hours are completed with one employer and 450 hours are completed with another, both employers will need to complete this form for the hours they are able to confirm. The total hours of both references would then be used to validate the applicant has met the prerequisite.

PLEASE REVIEW YOUR APPLICATION PRIOR TO SUBMITTING TO ENSURE ALL INFORMATION INCLUDED IS COMPLETE AND ACCURATE. NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
1. The FCN Theory course uses a discussion board as well as group emails to communicate with the class. If accepted into the FCN Theory course I consent to my email address being visible to my classmates.

2. In submitting this application I am aware I am applying for the Online Foot Care Nurse Theory course (FCN Theory). FCN Theory offers a theoretical foundation for new foot care nurses, to be followed by a Foot Care Nurse Clinical course (in-person clinical skills development). Together, both types of training are required to prepare participants to function as a Foot Care Nurse within a health care team.

Registration in the Foot Canada Training FCN Theory course does not guarantee you a space in a clinical course for an upcoming session. We strongly encourage all students to contact a Clinical Education Provider of their choice and inquire about available courses and the registration process prior finalizing registration to FCN Theory. Check out the Clinical Training page for more information.
