Why choose Caritas College?

Passionate teachers, real results.

We’re not your average online college. We take a different approach to teaching – we believe it should be engaging and not dry, so we incorporate fun experiential elements using gamification concepts to make learning fun.

We believe that education should be done around your home and work commitments and not the other way around. While the majority of our programs are online, we also offer hands-on clinical experience in select courses.

We offer courses in leadership, entrepreneurship and becoming a foot care specialist, providing you with the opportunity to not only change your life, but save others.

What our students say

“It was such a wonderful time and I will always remember it. Foot care was something that I’ve been needing for the last couple of years & finally I got it. The Health Centre asked me to give an in service of what I learned.I don’t know if I can do justice in half an hour.”

Foot Health Management Student

“This is a fascinating course, full of all kinds of interesting information. There is way more information in this course than any other courses I have taken for professional development before. I love to learn and appreciate the depth of this course. I am excited to be a student and to be taught by an expert in the field of lower limb health.”

“I love my pin. I will wear mine with pride. I really appreciate you helping us make this a real service for home care nurses in the North. I just wish you could see the faces of the Inuit men when I do their feet. I do so love doing this. Very satisfying work for sure.”

Judith Furlong

Foot Health Management Student

“At the start of this course I remember thinking: ” I can’t believe they didn’t teach us about foot care during the nursing diploma program. It clearly affects so many aspects of health!” Of course, shortly after this it became very clear that they couldn’t possibly have taught us about foot care without significantly extending the program, the information is too extensive. I had so many “aha” moments in this course. They range from new understanding that foot pain and injury are a significant fall risk in seniors, how improper foot wear affects the foot in serious and detrimental ways, way beyond blisters, and that the amount of pressure it takes to create a wound in a high risk foot is shockingly slight. This course broadened my horizon of nursing and brought me back from a task oriented approach, which we can so easily fall into, to a holistic, whole client view. I am thrilled to have taken this course and look forward to providing the best possible care to clients / patients in future.”

Foot Heath Management Theory student, 2020.

Two of the LPN’s I work with shared with me that they took a Foot Care course in Calgary through the VON in 2015. The course they took was 3 days long, with one of the days being a clinical day where they performed foot care on clients. Neither of these nurses used their training to practice foot care since taking their course. The course that Caritas College is providing, a 15 week comprehensive deep learning curriculum, has me feeling confident, able and ready to take on the challenge of being a professional Foot Care Nurse. I have also appreciated the review of systemic diseases, that as an LPN, I am encountering daily with the residents I work with. I recommend this course to anyone who is wanting to be a Foot Care Nurse. The course is challenging in the best of ways and I am thoroughly enjoying the course.
