Part 2 - Foot Care Nurse Course (Clinical)

Ontario and British Columbia

Course Description

Part 2 of the Foot Care Nurse course is a mentorship and clinical program that provides learning opportunities for students to practice their foot care nurse skills. With the exception of Part 2 in Kingston, this section of the course is independently administered by select education partners in Ontario and British Columbia. Tuition for Part 2 is not included in tuition for Part 1. Each location uses the same standardized peer-reviewed education guidelines and course outline. Please review the FCN Part 2 Course Outline for further course details including: prerequisites, course learning outcomes as well as performance and evaluation criteria.

NOTE: The Part 2 FCN Course Outline has been revised to integrate the Canadian Association of Foot Care Nurses' (CAFCN) National Competencies for Advanced Nursing Foot Care in Canada (2017) as exit competencies for the FCN course. 

The following locations will host Part 2 for the upcoming year. New locations may be added to this list if sufficient requests are received from that community, and an experienced Educator is available for that area, or an Educator is available to travel to that area.

Equipment Purchase Requirements

Costs for the minimum set of equipment, instruments and supplies required to complete Part 2 of the FCN course can range from $0 to as high as $900.

Costs vary depending on location and access to foot care clinic resources. For example:

  • $0 – Some locations include these costs in tuition. Nurses are also sometimes able to borrow the required course supplies from their employer.
  • Up to $600 – If needing to purchase equipment, lower quality items, gently used items, &/or single use items to meet minimum course requirements can be purchased at a lower cost.
  • Up to $900 – Depending on budget and student preference, higher quality equipment can also be purchased

Once registered for Part 2, your Part 2 Educator will provide you with a detailed list of equipment, instruments and supplies needed for the course at your location. Facilities that do not have access to an autoclave, will advise students to purchase single use sterile instruments for the course. Your Part 2 Educator will also provide a list of suppliers from which to purchase instruments prior to the course, or may advise you that they provide pre-packaged kits for their students for purchase.

Options and costs of sterile instruments after you graduate: 

  • $8-10 each set per client: Some nurses choose to outsource dirty instruments for sterilization to a hospital or community agency when sterilization services to community health care providers are available.
  • $8-10 each set per client: Some nurses purchase single use sterile instrument packages in bulk and dispose of each set in a sharps container.
  • $7 -9,000+ initial costs: Alternatively, instruments may also be sterilized onsite if an autoclave, incubator, ultrasonic cleaner, pouches, chemical and biological indicators are available and meet pre-cleaning, sterilization, and storage best practices, AND if there are trained staff available with a current certification in IPAC. In this case, extra sets of multi-use instruments must also be purchased.
