Onsite Foot Care Nurse Clinical Course

The Onsite Foot Care Nurse Clinical course (formerly FCN Part 2) is a 43 hour+/6 day mentorship and clinical course for nurses who have successfully completed the Online Foot Care Nurse Theory course and are ready to practise their Foot Care Nurse skills onsite with the guidance and supervision of a Foot Care Nurse Educator. The course uses the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses’ National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017) as Clinical Performance Standards and teaches a comprehensive, advanced and diabetic nursing foot care curriculum, which follows current best practice guidelines and evidence-based practice.

The curriculum for FCN Clinical was developed by Foot Canada Training and is administered by Foot Care Nurse Educators, colleges and universities who have a license to access and use Foot Canada Training’s curriculum. Education providers teach and administer FCN Clinical independently from Foot Canada Training. Each education provider has access to the same standardized peer-reviewed education guidelines and suggested Onsite FCN Clinical Course Outline.


FCN Clinical Refresher Course

The FCN Clinical Refresher course is an 8 hour in-person clinical mentorship and evaluation course designed for experienced Foot Care Nurses (RN’s, NP’s, RPN’s & LPN’s) who wish to challenge and update their knowledge and skills in advanced and diabetic nursing foot care. The curriculum was developed by Foot Canada Training and is based on the FCN Clinical course. The course uses the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses’ National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017) as Clinical Performance Standards and teaches a comprehensive, advanced and diabetic nursing foot care curriculum, which follows current best practice guidelines and evidence-based practice.

The FCN Clinical Refresher course is administered by Foot Care Nurse Educators, colleges and universities who have a license to access and use Foot Canada Training’s curriculum. Education providers teach and administer the FCN Clinical Refresher course independently from Foot Canada Training. Each education provider has access to the same standardized peer-reviewed education guidelines and suggested FCN Clinical Refresher Course Outline.
