Course Fee $2000.00 +HST (Eligible for NEI Reimbursement through WeRPN or RNAO)

This is a discounted fee from our core program however, the nurse must provide their certificate of completion from other nursing foot care courses they have completed.

This program is designed for Foot Care Nurses who wish to upgrade their knowledge, skill and judgment in the field of Podortho® Nursing and who wish to provide a whole care approach through our nurses post graduate foot and lower limb program?

Many Foot Care Nurse programs in the past have not provided sufficient practical experience and theoretical information for todays advancing foot and lower limb care needs in our communities across Ontario. As a nurse’s scope of practice in the province of Ontario continues to advance to meet the needs of our population our specialised program continues to provide those educational opportunities for our students (RPN’s and RN’s).

FFLSPN recognizes the needs of our aging and active population in our communities across Ontario. We have collaborated with Director’s of the Ontario Podortho Nursing Association Inc. www.opnassociation.ca to bring our student Podortho® Nurses up to date with respect to their knowledge and skills ensuring they are recognized and their patients are covered for the care the Podortho® Nurses provides with private health insurance companies. Patients will know when they come to see a Podortho® Nurse they will be covered for their care and paid by their health insurer.

Podortho Nurse students will need to complete this course as well as OPNA’s online orthotic and compression therapy courses in order to be registered with OPNA and receive your OPNA Registration number to place on your receipts for recognition through insurance companies.
