Resources

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.

Please Note:

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.
