So you want to be a foot care nurse! Or perhaps you are an experienced Foot Care Nurse (FCN) who wishes to update their knowledge and skills. This is where you start, with the first step - doing the Online Foot Care Nurse Theory course. It provides Canadian nurses (NP, RN, RPN, LPN) with 110 hours of self-paced curriculum that meets the 2017 Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses (CAFCN) National Competencies.

The course can be found here - Theory Course. The course follows a comprehensive, advanced and diabetic nursing foot care curriculum. This curriculum is based on current best practice guidelines, evidence-based practice, and national competencies. Students are expected to complete online quizzes and view pre-recorded slide presentations from their work/home computers. 

After successfully completing the FCN Theory course, nurses new to foot care must complete the clinical training in order to work as a Foot Care Nurse in Canada. Nurses who have completed the first step, the FCN Theory course are ready to move to step 2 - their clinical foot care training.
