Our program is designed for specialization in Advanced Nursing Foot Care. New Nurses will gain knowledge and clinical skills to develop a professional career in this field of practice.

Advanced Podortho Nursing Course Description
All Nurses must be registered with their respective College and provide proof of practice insurance for clinical practice through either RNAO, WeRPN or CNPS.
