PEDEd offers two types of education for nurses to increase their knowledge and skills in foot care: Theory and Clinical.
Theory for Nursing Foot Care is provided through content delivered online. You proceed through the content at your own pace but as part of a group and have access to weekly “office hours” support from Tannis. The course delivers content through a variety of media so people read, watch videos and complete interactive elements. There is something to engage people of all learning styles. The content is the most comprehensive available and is totally self contained. There are no additional books or resources to purchase. You can enroll and start learning, right away. Please go to the PEDEd Learning Site and enroll in the Free Sampler course to see and experience how content is delivered. If you want access to the theory only, enroll by going the Shop and choosing ONLINE THEORY ONLY option.
The Advanced Nursing Foot Care course provides a unique environment for you to gain the theory knowledge and complete the hands-on clinical session. To learn more about this option, go to the Advanced Nursing Foot Care course page for more information. The course is offered with specific regulatory information for BC, Manitoba and Ontario. See our Ontario Partners
“As a nurse, this was the most enjoyable course and clinical I’ve completed so far in my career. Due to life circumstances, I’ve not yet opened my own foot care business, but it is on the horizon in the next few years. I highly recommend this course if you are interested in learning about nursing foot care and want a solid knowledge and clinical base to grow from”. Amy B.
The Premium Advanced Nursing Foot Care Bundle is our most comprehensive offering. In this package you receive not only the Advanced Nursing Foot Care theory and clinical but you are also enrolled in the Onyfix and PODOExpert Certification course and have access to the Clinical Practice videos. This is the most comprehensive foot care nursing education available and really valuable for nurses in, or considering, private practice. Learn more at the Premium Advanced Nursing Foot Care Bundle course page.
The US and International Foot Care Nursing course is 100% online and self-paced. You do participate in discussions with others in the group and have weekly “office hours” support with Tannis. It is intended for nurses residing outside of Canada. It is theory only and covers the generic information of foot care nursing. During the course, nurses are prompted to learn about local scope of practice limitations, local business start up support and encouraged to organize clinical learning in their community in order to meet any regulatory requirements in their area. To learn more, go to the US and International Foot Care Education page.
The Clinical Practice videos demonstrate practical aspects of operating your clinical space. This may be a real benefit to new or less experienced practitioners who are just establishing work processes and spaces. For details see the Clinical Practice video page.

- When registering in the Advanced Nursing Foot Care course, you will be assigned a seat in a clinical session at no additional cost. The online theory must be completed prior to your starting the clinical. Successful completion of the course requires completion of both online theory and clinical.
- Clinical only: Ideal for nurses that have completed a foot care course but looking for additional clinical experience or nurses that have completed the on-line theory and needing to complete their clinical.
- 1 day (10.5 hour) Clinical $750 or 2 Day (21 hour) Clinical $950 all equipment is supplied during clinical. No take home instruments sets are included. *Some 21 hour clinicals are held over 3 days.
Due to the nature of the theoretical content delivery, no refunds are provided once a person has logged into a course.
In accordance with the clinical portion, please note, a tremendous amount of work and co-ordination goes into preparation for clinical. We typically have 60 – 80 clients attend. This requires coordination with volunteers, nursing staff as well as management of instruments and venue requirements. Clinicals are always planned for full enrollment of a co-hort and your course fee has secured that seat. If you cannot attend your assigned clinical date, you are required to provide at least 45 days written notice in order that adjustments can be made. You will be assigned a new clinical date based on future availability without any guarantee of when that may be. Any cancellations within 45 days of the initially assigned clinical date will result in you having to re-register.
If you fail to attend or otherwise do not successfully complete your clinical, you will be required to re-register for another clinical course at your own expense ($750 for 2 day or $995 for a 3 day clinical).
