While looking for a way to become self employed or at least move away from traditional bedside care/med pass jobs, I came across cde. I work with a lot of diabetics already at a nursing home. Could being CDE be a way to work as self employed one day and move away from the traditional nursing jobs? Thanks. I think this could be a very interesting career.

I think you should be able to do that as a CDE. Check out certification and more information on the AADE and NCBDE website

I’m a CDE but I work for a hospital they bill out my services.  To work open up own shop You’d need to know how to bill insurance companies, medicaid, Medicare , or hire someone,Need an NPI number, 

I don’t know how to do any of those and sounds like a hassle so I’d only do cash or credit.   Just make sure you keep track of income because come tax time need to report it.   Good luck
