Do nurses need any special qualifications to start a foot care business? I already have a business license and provide community health services and case management. I'm finding some need to refer to foot care nurses though and it got me thinking that maybe I could add that to my business plan.
I've done simple foot care and lots of diabetic wound care. So assessing feet i'm comfortable with. We did a short foot care clinic while I was in nursing school and I've had some lectures on it more recently.
Is it necessary to be certified if I just stick to more simple foot care (I don't want to use electric tools, I'll refer anyone who needs that to podiatry).
Appreciate any input.
