The American Foot Care Nurses Association was founded
With changes in the US Healthcare system, it is increasingly important to expand avenues of care to under-served communities. And by its very nature ... those requiring basic "Routine" foot care are under-served!!
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 training needed to fill the gap
and provide this critical care. 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.
