About Us



The American Foot Care Nurses Association was founded on the idea of creating a community of Foot Care Specialists.  With changes in the healthcare system, it is increasingly important to expand avenues of care to underserved communities.  And by its very nature ...  those requiring professional foot care are underserved!!  While Podiatrists and other physicians are the first line providers of this care, access and reimbursement issues necessitate that services such as "routine foot care" be provided by other qualified providers.


Nurses, PAs and other clinical staff are reaching out to obtain the education and skills to fill the gap and provide this critical care.  We are not trying to replace Podiatrists and other Physicians.  We are trying to be their clinical associates.  We exam the feet that others overlook.That allows us to make referrals for the more advanced care that the Physicians can provide.  And by performing the "routine care" on senior and high risk feet, we not only recognize and refer problems, we can help keep the feet healthier and prevent problems.


Our organization has been formed in an attempt to provide a forum for nurses and other providers of routine foot care.  This will allow communication, cooperative learning, and an increase in understanding of best practice protocols and procedures.  It will help us provide the most professional and appropriate care and truly become partners with other foot care professionals.
