Testimonials About Our Foot Care Course

Donna Duffield, RN
Kenora, Ontario. Canada

"I have found the education, information, contacts, and research skills I have acquired through your program invaluable! I plan to enroll in the Foot Care Educators course next year. I am currently planning a Community Based Foot Care Program. The mandate for the program is to provide on-site high risk foot screening, basic foot care, client/community based education, and prevention of lower limb complications secondary to Diabetes. This is my first foray into planning/implementing/consulting on programming...a lot of work, but I am confident that it will all be worth it once the program is up and running. I am just working on the final draft proposal to submit for funding. There is such an incredible need for foot care services in our Aboriginal communities!! The devastating and preventable complications of Diabetes on these clients are heart-wrenching - and the suffering so unnecessary!! There is such an incredible need for standardization of education for foot care providers!! I am astonished at the diversity of education and skill level of those currently providing foot care!! Thank you for providing these incredible courses...I will most definitely be advocating for the… Foot Care Nurse courses."

"Hello Cindy. Firstly, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the opportunity to take part in this course. Your dedication to this specialty is simply amazing. I'm looking forward to receiving your new 2015 textbook and reviewing and keeping in touch as I acquire new skills. After having reflected on this past week's clinical, I can honestly say that I love being a FCN !!! And I have you and my facilitator to thank. This course was life changing. Can't wait to see my marks. I'll be applying for the RPNAO grant :) Sincerely (and already missing the clinical environment)".

"Thank you so much Cindy. You are always there for your new grads, and I hope every one that is going or will be going through your program will love and respect you for your knowledge, support and take full opportunity of each email you send out - as I have since I have graduated your program. Once again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done and continue to do for all of us."
