Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses
The Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses is an organization formed by practicing Foot Care Nurses from across Canada.
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.
CAFCN is pleased to partner with CAWC in supporting the adoption of a Canadian, evidence-based validated tool in their approach to diabetic foot screening. The Inlow 60-second Diabetic Foot Screen can be found cawc.net/images/uploads/store/inlow_Tool.pdff_.pdf
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.
