For some time, there has been confusion across Canada, and even within its Provinces and Territories, about the advanced practice of nursing foot care. Wide variations have existed in regard to what represents an adequate education program for these practitioners and there has been a lack of consistency in the practice of advanced nursing foot care from one jurisdiction to another, and even from one practitioner to another. This situation poses problems for the quality and consistency of advanced nursing foot care from one person to another and from one location to another. It has also created a conundrum as to how a national certification process can be developed without some indication of what is included in advanced nursing foot care education and practice.
At this time there is no certification process for nursing foot care in Canada that is recognized by provincial regulatory bodies. CAFCN is in the process of developing national competencies, educational opportunities, and a certification process for foot care nurses across Canada.
CAFCN is not affiliated with, and does not endorse, any certification process currently being offered in Canada.
