Hi everyone! I am a RN(Med-Surg) for 6 years and diabetic for 30 years. Looking forward to interacting with all of you.

I am an Ophthalmologist/Retina Specialist. I do not have diabetes, but have created a blog on retinal disease to educate my patients.

I have recently joined here as a member to help educate.

Looking forward to engaging!

I am a nurse practitioner and have been working in a endocrinology practice in Utah for the past 5 years. I spend 50% of my time doing house calls for elders with diabetes who have difficulty getting into the clinic, the rest of my time is spent in the office. I'm excited to be apart of this group!

Hi anyone who wants to read this! I'm an RN CDE for the past 17 years with that many years of pump experience. I work with mostly type 1's and especially enjoy the 'transition age' (18 through late 20's). I'm working on my Masters in Public Health and am doing research on what is needed to help create transtions programs (because there aren't any!). My sister has had type 1 x 32 years and as kids the mean sibling I was at times inspired me to redeem myself.

Hello, I am a RN CDE and a Certified Product Trainer for a major medical company. Only working per diem as I have small kids and a military deployed husband. Also going back to school to get my NP and would like to work specifically with young adults and diabetic women looking to conceive.

I am a Nurse Practitioner (Neurosurgery/Trauma), with T2 on insulin. I am also a volunteer EMT-Critical Care for the past 19 years. I love what I do. I also have a passion for diabetes - to teach and to advocate.

Hi healthcare providers. RN MSN CDE, having taught diabetes educator for over 30 years and lived with Type 1 Diabetes for over 34 years. I'm job hunting as the clinic I was the diabetes educator for closed this week - hate this economy. I live in Tacoma, WA, married and have 5 children. In my past I've worked Med/Surg, started and coordinated the diabetes center at a major military medical center, wound care nurse and RN ADN instructor. I've worn an insulin pump for 27 years, Animas 2020 current pump, and Dexcom CGMS for almost 4 years.

I am also a RN - 14 years primarily in Med-Surg. I am from Texas and am looking to change direction both in nursing and possibly even getting another degree in a completely different field. If I stay in nursing I also intend to persue my studies and either finish as a NP or PA.
