Specific certifications/scope of practice question in Or
- 1Oct 8, '10 by RNGraceNMHi-
I'm confused about scope of practice in Oregon r/t diabetic foot care. I looked on the OSBN website and it is specifically stated that an RN can perform foot care. So what is with the 'certified foot care nurse' thing that some people have? Can I, as an RN w/o any specific certification, perform diabetic foot care (or more specifically, nail care) for my diabetic patients out in the community? I learned how to do it in nursing school...
