As a CFCN, I would love to see a Specialties thread devoted to this niche area of care. I believe that foot care nursing is teetering on the edge of exponential growth, as more and more people become in need of such care and fewer and fewer podiatrists are willing to provide the quality care that patients deserve.

As a new foot care nurse, I have questions -- and possibly answers -- and I don't want foot care topics to be lost in other threads. There may not be many of us out there right now, but it's hard to tell without our own thread. And in any case, I think that will change.

Thanks for considering it.

Hello,

We moved your thread to the Entrepreneur forum.

Recently, this past year, we merged Foot Care and Nurse Massage Therapy together with Entrepreneurs.

Here is the header in this forum:

Entrepreneurs in Nursing

Nurse Entrepreneurs combine their nursing background with business and utilize their individual creativity and resourcefulness to start their own companies. The Nurse Entrepreneur may include those who have experience in Foot Care, recognizing and treating foot problems which can avoid serious complications. Inspired and guided by Florence Nightingale, the Nurse Massage Therapist provides massage which can help in healing the mind and body. Join us as we discuss equipment, consulting services, and education as it relates to nursing while assuming inherent risks of business accountability.

You will find a lot of posts about Foot Care in this forum.

I knew the discussion was there, I was asking for our own thread.

You can start your own thread in this forum. That would be a great idea. Or, you can just let everyone post in this one.

Ok, I probably don't have the right terminology. I wanted foot care to be its own category under Nursing Specialties.

Yes, we understand, but the decision was made earlier this year to merge the Foot Care forum with Entrepreneur forum.

The reason is that the vast majority of posts regarding foot care were entrepreneur-related and we are attempting to reduce duplication/confusion. You can post in the Entrepreneur forum about anything related to Foot Care Nursing and members will reply.
