Education and Clinical for Nurses
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 Clinical program 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.
“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.”
Certification is an indication of an individual's current knowledge in a specialized area of nursing practice. It provides a standard to assist the employer, the public, and members of healthcare professions in the assessment of foot and nail care practitioners.
This course fulfills a portion of the requirements needed to take the foot care certification exam from either of the following two organizations:
- Wound Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB)
- American Foot Care Nurse Association (AFCNA)
