Foot Care Nurse Course (Part 2-Clinical) Course Description Healthy Heels & More Inc. is an education partner for Foot Care Kingston’s Foot Care Nurse (FCN) course. The Foot Care Nurse (FCN) course is designed for nurses (RN’s, NPs, RPN’s & LPN’s) new to foot care and for experienced foot care nurses who wish to update their knowledge and skills. The course follows a comprehensive, advanced and diabetic nursing foot care curriculum. This curriculum is based on current Best Practice Guidelines and evidence-based practice, including competencies from the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses’ National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017), which are integrated as exit competencies to the course.

FCN Part 2 (Clinical) is the mentorship and clinical component of the FCN course where students practice their foot care nurse skills. The curriculum for Part 2 was developed by Foot Care Kingston and is administered by Foot Care Kingston in Kingston and by select education partners across Canada.
