Foot Care Nurse

  1. 0
    What specific training would I need to take in order to do foot care on seniors? Do I have to be a RN? I'm only a PCW at the present time, I'm also located in Nova Scotia.

    Thanks.

    I'm trying to find something for you
    but so far the sources that I have checked by googling
    say for either RNs, LPNs, or PCW:
    but maybe if you contace them they would have ideas:
    VON: http://www.von.ca/branch/ab_edmonton/programs.html
    SIAST: has distance learning course: http://www.siast.sk.ca/virtualcampus...s/footcare.htm

    Sounds like there are no podiatrists in Nova Scotia.

    If you are employed buy a hellath care authority, check with them, they will have standards.

    If NS is like Ontario -- foot care is a certification that can only be granted to nurses, not unregulated health care workers.
