Hi, I was wondering if any of you could answer a question for me. I am a student nurse who will graduate in December. I am really interested in Hemodialysis. I am also interested in eventually becoming a Certified Diabetes Educator. From what I understand, to get the certification one must provide a certain number of hours of patient diabetes education. Can you do this in Hemodialysis? I know that a large population of patients are on dialysis as a result of diabetes. I was just wondering if I could prepare for my CDE while working as a dialysis nurse. I have tried to contact the American Diabetes Association for a answer but they were very vague. Can anyone provide me with an answer or refer me to a source that could?
Thank you so much for your time!!
