    Hello, BSNgrad2004,:Melody:

    I am unaware of any CNS program with a speciality in diabetes. The CNS with whom I have contact have the CDE certification. If you become CNS you can have a focus on the diabetic patient. I suggest the CDE cert.

I graduated from Bloomsburg University of PA. My program allowed each student to study a particular area of concentation and mine was diabetes self management. I am a CDE but also hold the crediatial of BC APRN from nurses credentially center. I am board certified in advanced diabetes self managment at the masters level.

    I am interested as well but I live in SW Florida. Am enrolling in USF N.P> program and would like to make diabetes the focus of my clinical practice. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
