Did you know that nurses are the #1 most trusted profession?
Our nurses use evidence, nursing knowledge and a person-centered approach to support overall health. We invite you to tap into their expertise. They are able to provide a knowledgeable listening ear, and help you understand your foot and health concerns. If they see something that is medically concerning they will also help you understand and get you the attention that you may need. We are dedicated to providing great evidence-based foot care to everyone who needs it. We are serious about this. Feet are what people need to get about and we believe that No-one should go without foot care.

We welcome inquiries from anyone – individuals, Councils on Aging, Aging Service Access Points, Home Health Agencies, and Assisted Living Residences and anyone who need nurses to provide great, evidence-based compassionate foot care to their clients.

We train nurses to be foot care nurses. We provide hands-on precepting opportunities in a variety of settings for both the American Association of Foot Care Nurses (AAFCN), CFCS certification and the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses Society (WOCN), CFCN certification.
It is our feet, not our faces, that walk us through life. At FootCare by Nurses, we believe that knowledge is power. Feet that are well cared for do not have bunions, corns, wounds or calluses and should not be painful or swollen. Your foot health should also not be a reason to have a wound or fall. We are happy to come and talk to your organization, nurses, caregivers, soccer teams, school groups, nursing students, medical students, senior groups, running groups or any organization that is curious, and values foot health.
