Where can I find an accredited online masters program? I know Graceland has a program. Do i need to obtasin CDE certification first?

    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 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.
