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 intended to follow Foot Canada Training Foot Care Nurse Theory course. FCN (Clinical) is where students practise their Foot Care Nurse skills. The course follows a comprehensive, advanced and diabetic nursing foot care curriculum. This curriculum is based on current Best Practice Guidelines and evidence-based practice, including competencies from the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses’ National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017), which are integrated as exit competencies to the course.

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 (formerly Foot Care Kingston) and is based on the FCN (Clinical) course. This course follows best practice guidelines and evidence-based practice and uses the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses’ National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017) as exit competencies.

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.
