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 on site 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.
