The courses were comprehensive, and Beverly you truly inspired me.

“I am writing to tell you that I passed the CDE® test on my first attempt!  Thank you!  I took every one of your bundle courses (level 1, level 2, and bootcamp) and I am so glad that I did.  The courses were comprehensive, and Beverly you truly inspired me.  The courses helped me to study for all topics on the test, without feeling overwhelmed.  The Power Points as well as the additional handouts were outstanding.  I carried the meds pocketcards with me to study on the go. I will absolutely recommend these courses to anyone preparing to take the CDE® exam, and I look forward to continuing to read your newsletters.  I am already putting the information I learned into good use as a dietitian, and now CDE®! Many thanks!”

Laurel Shonerd MA, RD, CDE®

Thanks again for your help!”

You have a great gift of teaching and you inspire me to educate my clients!

“I passed my CDE® last November with the help of your webinars and resources. I used your oral medication pocketcard daily and referred to the notes I took from your webinars.  You have a great gift of teaching and you inspire me to educate my clients with the same passion you gave to “their Diabetes Educator.” Many Thanks and continued success in all your endeavors.”

Jackie Traverso RN, MS, CCM, CDE®

“After attempting to study on my own, using The Art and Science of Diabetes Self-Management education Desk Reference, I decided to purchase the Deluxe Bundle and Boot Camp Webinar series.  This time I passed! Thank you so much for the support.”


Your presentations were so enjoyable to listen to!

“Just wanted to let you know that I studied using your diabetes Boot Camp series this April (used your series exclusively), and I passed the CDE® exam on May 15!!!  It was my first time taking the exam. Thank you so much for your program. Your presentations were so enjoyable to listen to and, combined with all of the handouts, your Boot Camp series took the stress out of figuring out what I needed to focus on and made studying far less of a chore.  I look forward to utilizing my new credential and all of the great information I learned!”

Stefania Medvedik RD, RN, CDE®

Your review course at Carmel earlier this year was vital in my preparation for this exam.

“Hi Diabetes Services Team! I took my CDE® exam last weekend and PASSED! Your review course at Carmel earlier this year was vital in my preparation for this exam. I wouldn’t have learned pattern management without your help, Beverly! Eternally grateful for the whole course and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to pass the exam!”

Loren Whyte, CDE®

I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all of the information that your Boot Camp gave me in preparation for the exam.

“I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all of the information that your Boot Camp gave me in preparation for the exam.  Your associate Susan was wonderful in assisting me with any difficulties I experienced.  As of May 9, I am officially a CDE®!  Thank you so much and I will continue to use your services for future CEU’s and webinars.  I have also spread your good name to my co-worker who is hoping to take the exam in the winter window.”

Stephanie Bazydlo, RD, CDE®

The courses really helped me focus my study and feel more confident on the exam.

“I passed the CDE® exam in May 2015! I purchased level 1+2+CDE® boot camp. The courses really helped me focus my study and feel more confident on the exam. The exam was challenging and covered a lot of material. Everyone taking the exam should listen to Beverly and read all the materials that she suggests on her reading list to focus on their studies. Beverly has such a calm voice. When I listened to her during the courses, she really helped reduce my stress level.” 

Vy Wu, PharmD, CDE®, CGP, CCP

Thanks to Diabetes Education Services for helping me achieve this amazing goal!

“So the journey begins….!  Passing the CDE® exam was HARD but it was SO worth it!  I’ve learned so much along the way that I’m already using to help educate & advocate for people with diabetes!  For me personally, I’ve always feared this disease because I have most of the risk factors.  But I can truly say being armed with education has helped me to take an active role in protecting my health and I hope to do the very same for every one I can.  Thanks to Diabetes Education Services for helping me achieve this amazing goal!”

Pamela Udoetuk, RN, BSN, CDE®

These were of great value in addition to studying and reading.

“I just wanted to say thank you to Beverly for your thorough webinars and helping me to be better prepared to take this challenging exam.  I purchased the CDE Prep Bundle (Level 1, 2, 3). These were of great value in addition to studying and reading.  I am finally able to do what I’ve always been passionate about, working as a CDE®!”
 

Helen McCoskey, RNC,CDE®

There was not one thing on the exam that you did not mention during the CDE® Review Course.

“This email is long overdue.  I do not know how to thank you and your team enough for all the information and knowledge I received while attending the CDE® Review Course in Carmel. It was so much fun and Carmel was beautiful! I learned a lot while meeting and networking with other diabetes educators.  With the knowledge and information you and your wonderful staff gave to me, I was able to PASS the CDE® exam on June 12, 2015 with confidence! There was not one thing on the exam that you did not mention during the CDE® Review Course. Thank you so much for your help and encouragement!”

Chanell Bradford, RN, BSN, CDE®

Thank you for helping me reach this goal!

“This is a picture of me and my oldest daughter Emma.  She was my inspiration for wanting to learn more about diabetes care.  When I was pregnant with Emma, I found out I had developed gestational diabetes.  Since then, we welcomed our second daughter, Harper in April 2014.  Having worked through diabetes with both of my pregnancies has given me a different perspective as a clinician.  I credit this awareness for inspiring me to learn more about diabetes care and becoming an advocate for diabetes education; which is why earning my CDE® credential was so meaningful to me. Thank you for helping me reach this goal!”

 

Linda Rocafort, MPH, RDN, LD/N, CDE®

I believe your CDE® Bootcamp courses helped me tremendously in my preparation.

“Yesterday, I realized my dream of becoming a CDE® by passing the exam on my first attempt! I believe your CDE® Bootcamp courses helped me tremendously in my preparation. Thank you for being such a reliable source.  I will definitely refer back to the information I learned from your courses as I continue to develop as an educator.  As a side benefit, I think my kids also benefited from observing me studying hard and working passionately in my chosen career!”

Theresa Kim, RN, BSN, CDE®

I can attest that it is possible to become a CDE®.

“I passed!  As someone coming from the Unique Qualification pathway with a Master of Public Health degree, I can attest that it is possible to become a CDE®.  We need more people dedicated to helping people with diabetes who have worked hard to prepare for the test. Study hard for the test and focus on continual learning that can help the patients you have the opportunity to help.”
