Program Length: 2 Days
Designed for the RN / RPN to expand their basic knowledge and skills in relation to foot care and to provide safe and effective care to high risk individuals and those with predictable foot and nail problems. The advanced foot care course will focus on the diseases and conditions that are most commonly associated with foot problems and will differentiate between those conditions that are within our scope of practice and those that require referral to a physician. Finally, we discuss guidelines for independent practice and summarize the tools and resources necessary to provide professional foot care services. Prerequisites: Participants must have the Basic Foot Care course and be a Registered Nurse or a Registered Practical Nurse.
