About

My name is Kristen Ritchie. I'm a Registered Nurse and certified by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB) as a Certified Foot Care Nurse (CFCN). I specialize in providing routine foot and nail care. 

 

I am also certified by the National League for Nursing as a Certified Nurse Educator (CNE). I develop educational materials for both clients and nurses with the purpose of preventing injury and infection and promoting independence and well-being.

I enjoy the merging of the art and the science of nursing within this specialty. Please feel free to ask any questions even if you are only curious.

Foot Care Nursing

Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses can perform foot care in Massachusetts if they have special education and training. Certification guarantees compliance with the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing Advisory Ruling on Nursing Practice, which requires nurses to have education (knowledge) and training (skills) to provide foot and nail care.

 

The two certifications are Certified Foot Care Nurse (CFCN) through the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB) and Certified Foot Care Specialist (CFCS) through the American Foot Care Nurses Association (AFCNA).

*RNs and LPNs cannot submit claims to Medicare, which selectively covers "Routine Foot Care". Most routine foot care is considered a personal care service and not a medical service.
