As our population ages and we see rising rates of diabetes, the demand for foot and nail care is rapidly increasing. This area of nursing practice is often neglected in formal nursing education, leaving a shortage of professional providers. This course will give you all the tools you need to begin a practice of basic foot and nail care.

5 Good Reasons to Take this Course:

Recession-proof your career.

Our aging population and the diabetes epidemic have dramatically increased the demand for professional foot and nail care services.

Advance your skills from basic to intermediate foot and nail care.

While nursing education programs typically include instruction on very basic care only, our program offers more advanced training.

Explore independent nursing practice in foot and nail care.

Like the idea of owning your own business? There is a growing shortage of skilled nurse providers who can offer intermediate or advanced foot and nail assessment and treatment.

After completing this course, you’ll be eligible to take the certification exam.

Certification in foot and nail care is available through the Wound, Ostomy & Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB). New eligibility requirements begin May of 2015, follow this link to learn if you are eligible.

Instructor Tara Beuscher talks about certification in this Youtube video.


Earn 6 education contact hours and 8 clinical contact hours.

This course is one of the few offered nationwide that includes both classroom instruction and a supervised clinical practicum. Register early — courses fill quickly. We limit class enrollment to 30 to ensure an optimal learning experience.

And, if you have ever thought about starting your own foot and nail care business, consider attending our new program, Foot and Nail Care: How to Start and Run Your Own Business. This 3-hour program is held the evening before the Foot and Nail Care: Education for Nurses program.
