Are there any CDE's out there? If so, did you receive money from your job before passing the CDE? And after? I'm trying to figure out what is a reasonable amount of money to expect. I guess it depends on the state, but I'm just trying to get an idea.

I am a CDE. My facility did pay for the my certification exam and I received a very small pay increase following certification. If you would like more information about becoming a diabetes educator, I encourage you to contact the American Association of Diabetes Educators at www.aadenet.org
there is also a link from their site to the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators where you can learn more about the requirements for eligibility to sit for the exam. Hope that helps.
