Gosh I am so excited to be done with my footcare course that I attended in San Diego through Shelly Taylor! The course was awesome and I learned alot. Now just passing the test. I have formed my LLC and am thinking of ways to get my business going. I would just like a few clients-my goal is 30 a month as I am also a staff RN at the local hospital here. I would like to hear about success stories from other footcare nurses and the services you offer and a price range? I am thinking along the lines of $45-$60 per home visit. Anyways, I got discouraged talking to another nurse who said the podiatrists in town were going to not like the idea, and that it would be difficult getting fee for service being unable to bill medicare. I almost didn't go to my course actually because it really bugged me. I am thinking that if I will pay 40 for a pedicure and have to drive there, why wouldn't someone pay for their mom or their selves to have footcare in the home? So, I am thinking that I might do some probono stuff at the alf/snf and checkout the diabetes clinic here in town. maybe the free drs clinic as well. I'm feeling that refferals is going to be a large part of my business as well so rounding up a team of who I know. Please tell me about your footcare biz and if you have struggled getting it going? the good, thebad, the ugly please! thanks
Thank you so much! You are really going for it, and I will read with interest your progress. In general, I'm working on organizing my efforts and fine tuning the areas I want to focus on. I'll see you around. Thanks again.
