Options to Collaborate
We have a variety of options available for organizations wishing to collaborate. General information is included below. Please contact us for more information.
- Customized Course - Our Foot Care Nurse (FCN) course has 2 parts. FCN Part 1 focuses on theory and is completed entirely online. This portion of the course runs 4x per year. Please visit our FCN Part 1 page for details. The second portion of the course, FCN Part 2, is in-person and provides clinical mentorship. This portion of the course is currently being offered in the following locations:
Additional locations for FCN Part 2 are anticipated over the next year. If however there is an organization interested in hosting FCN Part 2 at an alternate location with a group of 4 nurses or more interested in taking the course at the same time, we may be able to have one of our Educators travel to that community to teach Part 2.
- Hybrid FCN Course - Some locations develop their own clinical Foot Care Nurse course to meet the unique needs of their community, but prefer to have their students complete the theory online beforehand with Part 1 of Foot Care Kingston's Foot Care Nurse course. We call this a hybrid course. All organizations offering a hybrid course with Foot Care Kingston's FCN Part 1 must have a written agreement in place with Foot Care Kingston and must clearly identify their clinical Foot Care Nurse course as being separate and independent from Foot Care Kingston.
- Join our Team - We are looking for experienced Foot Care Nurses that have taken out courses to join our team of Preceptors and/or Educators. Please visit the Join our Team page for more information on current opportunities and to apply.
- Textbook Resource for Independent Foot Care Nurse (FCN) Course - We currently have 38+ colleges and partners across Canada who use our textbook for their own uniquely developed course. The Art & Science of Foot Care: A Clinical Recourse for Nurses in Canada (2017) was written with the Foot Care Nurse course in mind and is a peer-reviewed, multi-authored textbook that was developed through the collaboration of many experienced Canadian foot care professionals. If interested in using the textbook for your own uniquely developed Foot Care Nurse course, please note that the book is available for bulk purchase and/or individual purchase order through our textbook distributor Quality FootCare Products by calling their toll-free number 1-866-833-9352 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
