LPN/LVN foot care certification
- 0Oct 8, '12 by mariajerFinally!
A foot care course specially for LPNs is available at www.prof-educ.com. It is 10 modules, concise and easy to learn. But best of all, there is a specialty certification exam available now in foot care from NFLPN, the association, and I will come out with a FCNS, Foot Care Nurse Specialist, a foot care cert just for LPNs.

- 0May 17, '13 by NurseGrace27I currently work in a podiatry clinic and our podiatrists want to do away with general nail care as most of the time its not a "medical need" and not covered by medicare. I am hoping to find a certification course or program -something along the lines to qualify the LVN for basic foot and nail care (mycotic nails, cracked dry skin etc)
I dont see anything on the CA board of vocational nursing regarding "intermediate" foot/nail care provided by the LVN -so I am unsure what is within the LVN scope of practice. Do you have anything in writing?
thanks for your help! you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
- 0May 19, '13 by mariajerThe CEs and Certification, I understand, are through the nflpn. I didn't need the CEs so did not apply for them, just am taking the course. It is quite long, comprehensive and I am busy, busy so it will probably take me another month.
Go onto the site and contact the manager (www.prof-educ.com), though she is new, she will have your answers, pretty sure. If not, she will get them.
