How is the Clinical Practices Program designed?
This 10-Module course is designed to provide didactic information and training on subjects such as Structure and Functions of the Foot, Disorders of the Structures of the Foot, Skin and Nail Conditions of the Foot, and others. The first Module is the Introduction and Rationale and provides very important information on how to take the program, be awarded the CEs, etc.
What are the benefits for an LPN/LVN taking the Clinical Practices Program?
The presence of CEs in foot care on a resume verifies to an employer and to patients the LPN/LVN has increased knowledge, and cared enough about patients to learn these techniques. It is a benefit in competing for positions and can potentially influence wages. Also, knowledge of how to educate patients on the care of their feet, a focus topic in the training, is important in the care of chronically ill patients. Because of the dramatic increase in diabetes and other chronic illnesses, health care entities need and look for the LPN/LVN who have this information and may recognize specialty training by paying higher compensation.
