Re: Revised Advisory Ruling 93-05 Foot Care
At the March 9, 2011 Board of Registration in Nursing (Board) meeting the Board issued revisions to Advisory Ruling 93-05 Foot Care.
The Advisory Ruling guides the practice of Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses who, within their practice, incorporate foot care to meet nursing and client goals including, but not limited to, health promotion, client teaching, health risk reduction, and promotion of safety and comfort.
On the Board's website at www.mass.gov/dph/boards/rn, scroll to Nursing Practice, scroll to Advisory Rulings on Nursing Practice, and access Foot Care to review the entire document.
