Foot Care Nurse Clinical Refresher Course


The FCN Clinical Refresher course consists of online pre-course exercises followed by an in-person clinical mentorship and evaluation component. The course is designed for experienced Foot Care Nurses (RN’s, NP’s, RPN’s & LPN’s) who wish to challenge and update their current knowledge and skills in advanced and diabetic nursing foot care. The curriculum was developed by Foot Care Kingston and is based on Part 2 (Clinical) of the FCN course. This course follows Best Practice Guidelines and evidence-based practice and uses the CAFCN’s National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017) as Exit Competencies.

Experienced Foot Care Nurses or FCN Educators can apply to the FCN Clinical Refresher course at any time after having started Part 1 of the Foot Care Nurse course (online). Please review the FCN Clinical Refresher Course Outline read the Policies and Procedures Manual for further details.

This course is in its first year, it is currently only available in Kingston. We expect our education partners in Thunder Bay, Ottawa and Windsor will also be hosting this course shortly. New locations may be added if sufficient requests are received from that community and an experienced Educator is available to teach in that area. Each  of our partner location uses the same standardized peer-reviewed education guidelines and FCN Clinical Refresher Course Outline
