Please contact us should you have any questions. We endeavour to respond to all inquiries within 1-3 business days.
- Professional Reference - Applicants are required to have practiced as a nurse for the last 2-5 years AND have a minimum of 750 nursing foot care practice hours within this timeframe. Applicants must have an employer or foot care health professional complete and submit the Professional Reference form to validate that the applicant has met this prerequisite.
Applicants may have more than one reference complete this form if each reference can only validate a portion of the total years of nursing experience or total hours of nursing foot care required. For example, if 300 hours are completed with one employer and 450 hours are completed with another, both employers will need to complete this form for the hours they are able to confirm. The total hours of both references would then be used to validate the applicant has met the prerequisite.
- CAFCN Membership - Applicants are required to be a current member of the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses (CAFCN) and must email an electronic copy of their valid CAFCN membership card and/or membership purchase receipt showing current registration to firstname.lastname@example.org on the same day the FCN PREC Course Application is submitted. The email subject line must contain the last and first name of the applicant and be formulated as follows: LAST, FIRST - CAFCN Membership.
Both CAFCN membership card/receipt and the Applicant Reference form must be submitted for your FCN PREC Course Application to be processed.
