    I am a RN with fifteen years experience in a variety of specialty areas. I have been trying for two weeks to get information. I totally agree with your assessment of the one thousand required hours. If you or anyone else in this forum know of a solutionplease let me know!

    Hey all,

    I'm having a difficult time finding this information. I'm a RN 1.5 years out of school with med/surg and tele/stepdown experience. I've always enjoyed the pathophysiology of diabetes and dealing with treatments etc. I would love to get into diabetic education but am not sure on the route.
    I know that to be certified, you have to have 1,000 hours of diabetes self-management teaching experience and take the exam. My question is: How in the world do you get those 1,000 hours? I mean it sounds like they expect you to get a job doing diabetic education, and then officially certify later.
    Are these jobs to gain experience in abundance? How do you get into it? It seems like a catch-22 (experience needed to get job, certification needed to get job, but certification unavailable unless you have the job). Thanks.
    IT VERY IRONIC TO BE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM IN "BECOMING A CERTIFIED DIABETIC EDUCATOR". I HAVE HAD NO LUCK SO FAR. IF YOU KNOW OR FIND OUT WHAT TO DO, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!

    BE BLESSED,
    PRESS
