Foot Care Nurses are important in the following settings:

Foot Care of the Elderly

Americans are living longer and the numbers of elderly and diabetics are increasing quickly. Many will be suffering from chronic conditions, such as diabetes and others that require special care of their feet, and the med-surg nurse can be the one providing it.

Hospital Foot Care

Ulcers can occur on pressure point areas, including the heels of the feet, which can progress from no symptoms to an ulcer needing acute care within 48 hours. Patients benefit from a nurse’s assessment, prevention and care of these conditions on the feet.

Long Term Care Foot Care

Foot care in this setting is critical as poor foot care may allow the development of severe lesions on the feet and legs of patients, with potentials for amputation and death. It is imperative RNs in this setting know foot care to reduce the suffering and morbidity of patients.

Podiatry Offices and Diabetic Foot Care Clinics

Trained RNs can lighten the load for podiatrists and physicians by performing Routine Foot Care and dramatically increasing patient treatment numbers.

Home Care Nurses

RNs can perform foot care for home-bound patients. No, or poor, foot care can cause ulcers and other serious infections on the feet. An RN trained in assessment and Routine Foot Care is providing important prevention and treatment care to these patients.

Private or Mobile Foot Care

Some states allow RNs to develop their own treatment practices in Routine Foot Care. The legal parameters are mapped out in the state’s practice guidelines and can provide the freedom and opportunities never before enjoyed in the RNs’ professional lives.

This was a very thorough course.

I heard about this course from the American Foot Care  Association.  Course beneficial to any RN who works in a Podiatry/Foot Care arena. It was amazing how complex some of the topics were but at the end of the course they all came together in a complete picture.

We check in with AFCNA from time to time to be sure we are covering their required topics. We are so glad you found that everything wrapped up nicely for you, John. Best wishes in your career!

I heard about this course in the WOCN  information regarding CEs required for certification for foot care RN. Great content!

Thanks, Catharine - we review our content periodically to be sure we are covering the topics required by the WOCNCB.

I am a holistic nurse and reflexologist, working both in private practice and a health clinic. I have been adding more foot care into my practice and appreciate the information for this nursing specialty.


This is an excellent career path, Judith! Very best wishes!

Informative course. Would like to be able to print certain slides to use as study guides. I find handouts useful for studying.

Darlene, thanks for your feed back. We do provide lots of downloadable tests/assessments/resources, but we are also working on a Handbook you could keep as a reference.

Helpful overview & review of Foot Care; am already CFCN.

That's our intent, Janice. Thanks for your input!

It was useful. It seem repetitive in places, but this reinforced the concepts.

Yes, Jackie, the repetition is valuable for some learners. Also, some repetition is incorporating different approaches, but we do appreciate your feedback.
