I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I’m a nurse and diabetes educator. I wrote a post on our old blog about feeling disconnected from nursing at times. A specialty like diabetes education can do that to you, because it’s a multi-disciplinary specialty (dietitians, social workers, pharmacists, exercise physiologists, PTs, MDs can all be diabetes educators). I am in full support of a multi-disciplinary approach, especially when it comes to diabetes education and management. However, it makes me feel isolated from my nurse colleagues. Not to mention that I’ve been a department of one for the last twelve years! My hope is that this blog will be an opportunity to stay connected to nurses. We can share our thoughts, passions, ideas and more.
Thanks for joining us!
