The Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses is an organization formed by practicing Foot Care Nurses from across Canada.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, CAFCN encourages all foot care nurses to reach out to their regulatory college, professional associations, and local health authorities when making decisions regarding their own individual nursing foot care practice.
CAFCN thanks all front-line workers for their dedication during this time, and wishes safety and health for all.
At this time there is no certification process for nursing foot care in Canada that is recognized by provincial regulatory bodies. CAFCN is in the process of developing national competencies, educational opportunities, and a certification process for foot care nurses across Canada.
CAFCN is not affiliated with, and does not endorse, any certification process currently being offered in Canada.
The mission of the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses is to advance the practice of foot care through a collaborative and networking process for all individuals providing foot care. Work with us to improve the health and experience of our patients.
Nursing foot care is a practice that always considers our patients and clients holistic’s needs. We realize that we must practice as part of the greater health care team. Our care often intersects and overlaps the care given by other health professionals. To help us do this we draw on resources from a wide variety of other sources as well as our own to help us be valuable team members.
Our 2023 Conference is May 26 – 28, with the AGM happening on Saturday, May 27. As always, we look forward to an interesting line-up of speakers and workshops, all designed to help you learn and improve as a foot care nurse! Registration will open in March. Sign-up to be notified as soon as tickets go on sale.
