Foot and Nail Care Series

Education for Nurses and other Healthcare Professionals

Interested in broadening your professional options? Consider adding foot and nail care to your skillset. With an aging population and rising rates of diabetes, the demand for nurses trained in foot and nail care is increasing. Formal nursing education often neglects this area of practice, resulting in a shortage of professional foot and nail care experts.

Let this shortfall become your opportunity. When you enroll in our Foot and Nail Care Education and Foot and Nail Care Clinical programs you will gain the skills and knowledge you need to begin a practice of basic foot and nail care. If you’re ready to start out on your own, also consider enrolling in Foot and Nail Care: Starting a Business.

We recommend that you take the Foot and Nail Care Education course followed immediately by the Foot and Nail Clinical. This allows you to apply what you have learned for greater retention of the material. We do understand that everyone's situation is different so there are a limited number of seats in the clinical for those choosing the clinical only.

“What I enjoyed most about the Foot and Nail Care program was the practicality of it. This is something that I will actually use in my practice. The clinical experience was great and it was nice to be able to practice so much right after we learned the didactic.”
