What is a foot care nurse?
A foot care nurse is a regulated professional who has taken additional education specific to the foot and lower limb in addition to their formal training as a nurse.
Who can benefit from foot care?
A foot care nurse can help reduce heavy calluses, corns, and trim deformed or thickened nails. The nurse also assesses feet and the lower limb for circulation, sensation, edema (swelling), and assesses for the potential risk of ulcer development, and falls. A large part of a nurse’s job involves client education and monthly to bimonthly follow up.
Many extended health care insurance plans cover foot care.
