Nursing Foot Care
This seven-day course is for currently licensed-to-practise RNs and LPNs (other licensed health care providers, e.g RPN, RMT, PT, and OT may be enrolled at the instructor’s discretion). Students must present written proof of current licensure on the first day. Course runs Monday to Friday of Week 1 and Monday and Tuesday of Week 2.
A holistic approach to foot care is presented. Upon completion, you will be able to identify and understand causes, prevention and treatment of various foot care disorders. You will understand factors affecting foot health and factors that put the foot at risk. Foot care within the scope of nursing practice will be discussed. This course prepares participants to provide nursing foot care services within a health care setting and in private practice. Practical advice regarding establishing a private practice is explored. You must complete a clinical practice component and an open-book examination (70% mark required).
The manuals will be available for pre-reading after March 15 at UFV Clearbrook centre at a cost of $60 (cash or cheque only).
