Hands-on Foot Care Training Workshop

With numbers of Seniors and Boomers increasing in our society, routine foot care is a skill that nurses and other health care professionals need to add to their practices. Dr. Julia Overstreet will take only five students at a time for a full day of hands on training. The day begins with one hour of didactic education. The next hour allows the students to become more comfortable with the instruments they will be using. They will practice using each instrument on practice materials that simulate nails and calluses.

The rest of the day is spent with patients! Each student will be able to work with as many patients as their speed permits. Dr. Overstreet will be at chair side to instruct, demonstrate, advise and encourage! Remember that there will only be five students at each session so you will have excellent mentoring from Dr. Overstreet. You will leave this day with the confidence and skills to immediately begin providing foot care as a part of your practice.

If your goal is to apply for WOCN or AFCNA.org Foot & Nail Care Certification, this program qualifies and fulfills the hands-on requirement for that certification.
The program is held at a facility in Issaquah, Washington. It is offered three days each month. Check the listings below for availability.

Your package includes:

  • All Instruments and equipment needed for the full day
  • Training references and handouts
  • Medicare compliant patient encounter document sheets
  • Infection control protocol worksheets
  • Special information & material to help you start your own foot care practice
  • One-on-one proctoring from Dr. Overstreet with a maximum of 6 students per session
  • Lots of challenging feet to learn on!

Refund Policy:
This class is limited to only six nurses per day. We have roughly 30 patients coming for each class. So if one of the nurses cancels at the last minute, it puts a burden on the remaining nurses. They are not able to spend the time they need to work with each patient fully and provide good care.

If you need to cancel, please call 425-223-5173 and leave a voicemail, giving your name and the date you are canceling. You can also leave an email at DrJulia@RainierMedEd.com with the same information. If we receive this voicemail or email seven (7) days prior to your class, you qualify for a full refund or for rescheduling to the next available class at no additional charge. However, if you do not inform us seven (7) days in advance, we cannot fill your spot. Therefore, you forfeit 100% of your tuition. The exceptions to this would be a "snow or weather day." or an illness, verified by a doctor's note.



If you have dietary restrictions for lunch, please email us at: DrJulia@RainierMedEd.com.
There are approximately 4 hours of free videos to watch in order to prepare for class.
