So, I'm pondering changing careers. I've been the Activity Director at a nursing home for nearly 17 years now, and while I love my residents, I can't shake this feeling that maybe I should be doing something else now. That feeling, along with some difficult changes (ie: mandatory furlough) at my current job, have me doing some research into what else I might be able to do.
I figure since my brain is full of diabetes knowledge anyway, maybe this is where I need to look. I've been looking into becoming a CDE. I would have to go back to school, of course, but that part excites me. I always enjoyed the challenge in college. (I have a BS in Art Therapy, minor in Gerontology... those don't help on the tracks to become CDE certified.) I'm just not sure what I would do after I finished... not to mention that going back to school isn't exactly in our budget right now.
Anyone d-parents out there making a living in a diabetes-related field? (I do not want to be a nurse.) I'm up for any suggestions or ideas!
