Erin, you are a natural born teacher. Sharing your vast knowledge and experiences will indeed capture the reader’s attention.

In preparation to open my own clinic, I was given the opportunity to shadow Erin at her own. She provided me with great insight and training, educating me on procedures and techniques. Erin is very knowledgeable, and l am grateful for her time and continuing guidance. She is dedicated and works tirelessly for the association and its members. Since joining the OPNA, l have become a board member in hopes to help guide and educate fellow nurses as Erin has. Thank you, Erin. I appreciate all that you do.

I thoroughly enjoyed your Podortho Nurse Bridge Program. Josee, is an excellent mentor and teacher!! I also greatly enjoyed your textbook!! It was a great review for me and a great reference book. I appreciate all the hard work you are and have done for this specialty.
My mom is a patient at Feet for Life Medical and had treatment for her plantar fasciitis & heel spurs, she told me about the many treatment options and I was very interested in learning more! I found the Podortho Nursing program and immediately reached out to register. Working as a nurse in the hospital was becoming overwhelming, so working as my own boss sounded great! I enjoyed how hands on the clinical training was in Barrie and how thorough the textbook is. I highly recommend becoming a Podortho Nurse. I've definitely found my calling!
