Are you a motivated RN who likes to help others manage and maintain healthy lifestyles? Then diabetes nursing might be for you! With about 25.8 million Americans diagnosed with diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association, there’s an ever-increasing need for nurses specialized in treating diabetes.
Hospitals are desperately seeking the nation’s most qualified nurses to help combat the diabetes epidemic. Plus, the salary is predicted to keep growing in this specialty to compete with the growing need for these professionals. One primary duty of a diabetes nurse is to run information between doctors, patients, and family members so strong verbal skills are a must in this specialty. Additional duties of diabetes nurses are to monitor blood sugar, minimize nerve damage, and educate patients on leading healthy lifestyles (exercise, diet, etc.)
If you’re thinking about making the transition into the lucrative diabetes nurse specialty, you must first obtain your MSN (with 500+ hours in diabetic medicine), and then receive your BC-ADM through the American Association of Diabetes Educators in order to became an advanced diabetes nurse specialist.
