How to Treat, there are not many ways !
JUST 4 Options

4 Ways to Treat are :

Topical / Laser / Oral / Surgical Removal

The decision is very case specific and a different treatment plan based on the amount of nail affected, thickness of the nail, # of nails affected and how long they have been affected.

Jonathan is such a sweet guy, super caring and super knowledgable

26 February · Lisa Garland . I just returned from my cousins home in Rigaud Quebec. She has been a foot care Nurse for 20 years. She let me work on her feet. She told me I must have had great training as she was very happy with the care she received. As good as she would give to her clients. Thank you Lisa and the Tiredsole team for preparing me for excellence. OXOXOXO

Business and Accounting

WE Call it Business FootPrints 2.0

In the 7 plus years I have been teaching and mentoring Nurses from all positions of Nursing, I always come to the same conclusion WE ARE NURSES not Business Admin. Nurses have very little background in Accounting and or administrative duties, Health Care professionals chart on a Healthcare specific charting format, in most cases paper charts, even in this day in age.

What do Nurses know about expenses?

What do Nurses know about being an Entrepreneur ?

Do Nurses know anything about being a Sole Proprietor ?

More and More we are seeing Health care professionals with all types of experience decide they want to break free from shift work and Hospital / Agency politics. Support Staff are going off to help with private care, Nurses leaving to work for Dr’s Offices or small self made clinics to better assist patients without the looming rath of CCAC. I mean it’s why I became a Foot Care Nurse. I felt, even though I loved my job as a wound care Nurse, I loved the community aspect of the freedom to move as I please, BUT I actually worked on strict guidelines put forth by CCAC. As incredibly helpful as CCAC is, at times we just did not agree.

I have decades of experience as a nurse. Acute care, geriatric, Memory care, home care, D.O.C., geeez the list goes on. I took all that worked and all that didn’t work and applied it to what I do now. TiredSole™, My Baby wow has it grown in 4 years, 1/2 Million dollars grown, I mean wow.

Every Nurse we interview, the terror in most when we say THIS IS A CONTRACTED POSITION. It’s not so scary when your off on your own, making your own schedules, writing off your car, your gas, rooms in your home, even some get a ways ( 2 a year I believe ).

Knowledge is Power Right ?

I’m offering this amazing 2 day course to help myself as well as anyone in the position of being in charge of their own finances, all the Health Care Sole proprietors out there. I have teamed up with an amazing Accountant to start us off and then will continue follow up with a business guru to help with pushing you to think like a Business with branding and Marketing

Stay Tuned for Clinical Dates

Coming Soon, Dates will be posted as we prepare for our hands on clinical at TiredSole™ I’m Thinking September would be a great time to start as others are preparing to go to school themselves. Thoughts?

It will take approx 6 to 8 weeks to complete the Virtual on line theory and a Keener can actually get it done in 4 weeks if necessary. This way the Virtual Theory will go live in July for hands on in September. Does anyone have a need for it to be earlier ?

Finding a Job in Foot Care

So Many People so little time ……. !

Everybody seems to think the need is not abundant, I mean most people have 2 feet, Diabetic related issues are on the rise, Senior Centres and communities are in great need of Nurses properly trained with high standards in infection control. Pharmacy and Nurses who work in Community are in high demand. As more of the population age and they are unable to find proper supports in the home, more and more issues with feet have become alarmingly high. There are so many opportunities with agencies or what about making your own schedule on your own time !

Imagine that, no one telling you what to do, no deadlines, no time specific urgencies
