Approved by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), this training program provides certification in Diabetes Specialty for long-term care workers, across Washington state. This is different from and does NOT qualify someone to be Nurse Delegated for Diabetes care, that would be the ND Diabetes class.
State-approved Diabetes course curriculum covers:
introduction to diabetes
caregiving for diabetes
The one-day Diabetes class also includes a competency exam, which requires a score of 80% or higher to successfully receive a DSHS-approved Diabetes Certificate and 8 hours of Continuing Education units.
Our Diabetes class is offered once a month. More classes will be added if needed.
Online Option: The class is available in-person or via zoom. If you attend via zoom it costs $5 extra to cover the cost of mailing the workbook and technology fee. You must register at least 5 days before the class to ensure there is time for the workbook to be mailed to you. You can use a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone to attend class as long as it runs zoom and your camera and microphone are enabled. The test will be given via an online form and the certificate will be emailed to you.
Cost: $90.00 in-person, $95.00 online
