           The American Foot Care Nurses Association was founded
        on the idea of creating a community of Foot Care Specialists.
  


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!!  

Podiatrists and other Physicians are traditionally the first line providers of this care. But changes in the
Health Care Industry have lead to access and reimbursement issues for many who need care. This can 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 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.  


It will help us provide the most professional and appropriate care
and truly become partners with other foot care professionals.
