Well what about Diabetes?
Yes, diabetes! Many student nurses are unaware that diabetes is a speciality in nursing that you can pursue. With diabetes reaching epidemic numbers not only in the U.S. but around the globe, a specialty is needed and so you are.
Whether you have been personally been affected by diabetes or know someone who has or just have a passion for it, you can consider becoming a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE).
