Foot Care Business

  1. 0
    I have been a visiting nurse and hospice nurse for over 20 years and have recently decided to take on some extra work providing foot care in the home. It seems that there is a great need for this because my clients are always asking me to provide foot care for them. Due to this economy I really do need the extra work especially before Christmas.
    I don't know where or how to get started. I just discovered this website and hope that someone can give me some much needed advice.Please help.Desperate nurse in Virginia

    In VA, are you able to bill insurance directly? That's not necessarily a must.

    I work with a lot of disabled clients who have to see a DPM regularly for foot care, but one service that would greatly help is having someone come into the home and providing care.

    You can get invaluable information and even become a CFCN ...Certified Foot Care Nurse through the Wound Ostomy Continence Board. Also good info from http://www.hrsa.gov/leap/

    Is there anyone here from IL who has a certificate in nail/foot care who can supervise the clinical portion to go along with the 4-part DVDs from MUSC?
