Happy new year, Catherine!
Since I became a member of IBSIG from 2016, when I just started practicing my footcare business, I have received tremendous resources and help from IBSIG. IBSIG really presents me, RPN, as a footcare professional.
I have received hundreds of emails from IBSIG through the years with the information of Changes in CNO, RPNAO, CNA, CDA, PHAC, IBSIG, etc. that included knowledge of organizational regulation changes, continuous education, income tax, infection control, business liability insurance, etc.
The president, Catherine, was personally on the phone with me several times with great patience to guide me. IBSIG showed me how to connect with experienced foot care nurses and suppliers, explained ways to get new clients, gave me tips to interact interprofessionally and to legally protect myself.
I have gained so much confidence and knowledge from interacting with IBSIG and have achieved the goals of being an independent foot care nurse. I am happy to be a member of IBSIG.
