Foot Care Practice Groups

Have you ever wondered if there was a foot care practice group in your area? There are many incredible and helpful associations and groups across Canada. Once this website is populated with nurses, you’ll be able to see nurses who practice in your area province or state. If you are so inclined you could start your own practice group!  Not only is it informative but it’s a great social experience!

I would love you to submit your practice group information! I will post the details so that nurses can find other nurses to share and help in practice issues! Please submit your groups info via this link, just click on it and it will take you to the page!:
