Foot Care Nurse Services

PCN Foot Care Nurses provide treatment for foot pain, medical pedicures, diabetes-related care, and more.

The PCN offers access to Foot Care Nurse Services to treat patients experiencing foot pain related to lengthy and thick nails (including fungal infections), corns, or callouses non-invasively within our scope of practice. They can also provide pre-diabetes/diabetes-related foot care.

Included in this service are thorough feet and nail assessment, ambulation, foot wear, skin condition and circulation. Our nurses provide medical pedicures, basic wound care, as well education that can help prevent pain and complications.

Ongoing support is available depending on service demands.

Our Allied Health professionals can offer services in a variety of languages and have access to interpreter services in over 150 languages.


  • Patient is attached to a Burnaby Family Physician or Nurse Practitioner
  • Patient is 19 years or older and not able to perform their own foot care due to medical, physical or mental health factors
  • Patient cannot access service through private options

Please speak with your Burnaby-based Primary Care Provider to see if you are eligible for this service.
