    For some reason I can't PM you. Go to the Emory website (WOCN) and click on faculty/staff. I have been corresponding with the 4th person on the page... you can email her that way.
    I don't have any special certification either, but am diabetic and anything regarding diabetes is my "forte." What I learn for myself I just pass it on to my diabetic patients, but really want the certification in diabetic foot/nail care.

    Emory University in Atlanta, GA has a Diabetic foot/nail course that is sponsored by their WOCN department. Go to www.surgery.emory.edu/wocnec/programs.html..... sometimes finding the link to the course is hard to find but search around the WOCN site and you should find it. They have a course every quarter or so. I'm planning on attending the next one... whenever that will be... hopefully in January.

    thank you I was finally able to figure it out.:bowingpur

    I will email the instructor and see when the next dates are taking place.
    For me I would rather the training be later on in the spring.
    This is exciting. Do you know what the costs are?
    Do they have on site housing or you stay in local hotels, I live in louisiana so I would probably drive...???
    Where do you live?

    We provide foot care at 10 different locations. How do the rest of you handle cleaning/sterilizing of your instruments - we can see 20 - 25 people in one day at a couple of locations.

    Thanks for your input.

    Hi Bizi,
    Yes there are 3 of us and I'm looking for a 4th nurse to join us. We are a department of the local hospital.
    I know Canada is really far ahead of us in the foot care arena and have found their recommendations on line, but nothing for us here in the states.
