Remembering the “Lady with the Lamp” – Happy Nurses Week

May 6th kicks off the seven-day celebration of Nurses Week and culminates on May 12th, the birthday of the founder of the field of nursing, Florence Nightingale.

Florence established the first professional training school for nurses, the Nightingale Training School at St Thomas’ Hospital in 1860. The school is now part of King’s College London. She published over 200 books, reports, and pamphlets on hospital planning and organization which are still widely read and respected today. Her most famous work is pictured above, Notes on Nursing: What It Is and What It Is Not which still offers nurses relevant content almost two centuries later.

In nursing school, Florence Nightingale‘s history was required reading. But, in my early twenties, I didn’t really grasp the significance of “the Lady with the Lamp” and her contributions until I visited the Florence Nightingale Museum in London, England.

My most meaningful experience as a tourist in London was my stop at the Florence Nightingale Museum.

Even 200 years after her birth, we are still building upon the messages and framework that Florence established. Florence had an aptitude for statistics and applied research. She quickly realized that the root of many diseases was the lack of access to clean water, decent working conditions, a safe living environment, healthy food, clean air, and sunshine. In order to improve the health of our communities, Florence campaigned to provide these most basic needs to all people.

Let us keep the light that Florence lit so long ago glowing as we honor and celebrate the over 4 million nurses in the United States.

“The Lady with the Lamp”
Florence Nightingale

Florence was ahead of her time

Florence was born in 1820 in Italy Florence Nightingale. Born in an era when middle-class women were expected to simply make a good marriage and raise a family, Florence sensed a ‘calling’ from God at an early age and believed she was destined to do something greater with her life.

At the age of 33 Florence convinced her parents to attend a 3-month ‘nursing’ training and soon she became superintendent of a hospital in London.

In 1854, Florence went to Turkey with 38 other “nurses” to provide care to suffering and wounded soldiers during the Crimean War. She quickly set about organizing the hospitals to improve supplies of food, blankets, and beds, as well as the general conditions and cleanliness.

The comforting sight of her checking on the soldiers at night earned her the name ‘Lady of the Lamp’, along with the undying respect of the British soldiers.

Florence was a champion of sanitation and handwashing. She was determined to avoid the medical mistakes she witnessed during her two-year-long service at the military hospital.

As a skilled statistician, she vividly communicated the need for medical reform using detailed charts which showed that more men had died from disease than from their wounds. She then instigated a Royal Commission into the health of the army which led to a large number of improvements and saved the lives of many.

Early Public Health Advocate

Her attention later turned to the health of the British army in India. Through careful research, she demonstrated that bad drainage, contaminated water, overcrowding, and poor ventilation were causing the high death rate.

She concluded that the health of the army and the people of India had to go hand in hand and so campaigned to improve the sanitary conditions of the country as a whole.

First Nursing School

The Nightingale Training School was established in 1860 in London using donations from the Nightingale Fund. Its reputation soon spread and Nightingale nurses were requested to start new schools all over the world, including Australia, America, and Africa.

Nursing students worked long days and their dorms were often located on the hospital site. Graduates became invaluable leaders in the areas of infection control, comfort, sanitation, and improving quality of life.

The Field of Nursing has Come a Long Way

During her lifetime, Florence Nightingale witnessed the development of the nursing profession and created a standardized curriculum for the development of new nurses. Almost 200 years later, our profession has flourished and taken a leadership role in hospitals, teaching institutions, clinics, public health, military, research, and more. Nurses are four million strong, with a big vision for the future coupled with the art of caring for each individual.

Hat’s off to our Founder and Trailblazer, Florence Nightingale. Our lights keep shining bright forever.

April eNews | Diabetes Certification Exam Updates You Need to Know

The Steps to Getting Certified Have Changed – A LOT

I remember clutching my calculator and driver’s license as I entered the crowded test site to take my Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) Exam for the first time 29 years ago.

Back in the early 90s, applicants needed 2000 hours of diabetes self-management practice experience to qualify and a #2 pencil to bubble in the right answers on the exam scantron.

I felt queasy as I opened the test booklet and looked at the first question, which was a long vignette with a complex chart of blood sugar data. A terrifying thought crossed my mind “What if I fail, what would my staff think”?

Over 3 hours later, I gave my bubbled-in scantron to the proctor, stepped out into the sunshine, and took a big breath of relief.

Thinking back on this day, I clearly remember a lack of study tools and resources to prepare for the exam. Our little group studied the “AADE Blue Books” and created practice quizzes, but I still felt extremely unprepared for the exam in front of me.

This profound experience kick started the creation of our company, dedicated to making sure that health care professionals have the tools and resources needed to realize their professional dream of achieving (and maintaining) certification.

In truth, achieving my CDCES is one of the best and most meaningful investments in my professional career!  

For this newsletter, we celebrate diabetes certification.

We dive into the modified eligibility requirements for the CDCES exam. We also provide a simplified explanation for certification renewal. Coach Beverly shares her journey to become a CDCES. Plus, we explore our most popular Question of the Week ever and pose a new question regarding Type 1 and Ramadan. To celebrate Spring, the ADA Standards Book is on sale too!

Wherever you are on this journey, we are here to cheer you on each step of the way. Let us know how we can help!

February Newsletter- 5 Myths about Exercise, Sitting & Sleep plus Winter Recipes

February – 5 Myths about Exercise, Sitting & Sleep plus Winter Recipes

New ADA Standards recognize food insecurity and its impact on mental wellness

In the first pages of the ADA 2021 Standards, there is important and detailed information addressing population health. This in-depth focus explores the Social Determinants of Health, acknowledging their impact on diabetes self-care and outcomes.

Our feature article, contributed by Bryanna Sabourin, draws our attention to the mental toll associated with food insecurity. People with diabetes are at higher risk of not having enough food to eat due to socioeconomics. This is especially true for single mothers and people of color with diabetes.

 We explore the social impact and provide resources that diabetes specialists can share with those who are experiencing food insecurity and distress.

In addition, I investigate some potential myths around exercise, sitting, and sleep. Are modern humans lazier and more under-slept than our ancestors? Regardless of the data, I’m not ready to give up my treadmill desk anytime soon!

February kicks off Black History Month and provides me with a perfect opportunity to recognize and celebrate a colleague that I worked with over 30 years ago. Ms. Davis made me feel proud to be a nurse and role modeled professionalism coupled with compassion.

Our rationale of the week quizzed test takers on the latest 2021 ADA Medication Algorithms and addresses a common medication management issue. See what you think.

With chilly weather blanketing much of the United States, it’s a perfect time for some recipes that not only nourish our bodies but warm us up. We’ve put together our most popular winter recipes by Dawn Desoto, RD, CDCES.

We love celebrating our DiabetesEd Online graduates. Most recently we are thrilled to congratulate Susan George for passing her BC-ADM Exam and sharing her story with us.

Lastly, this Monday, I got my second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at 7:30am. One hour later, I was clocking miles on my treadmill (pictured above). I did experience some chills and body aches that evening, but by the end of day 2, I felt great!

January 2021 eNews – 5 Reasons to Celebrate & Most Frequently Asked Exam Question

January 2021 eNews – 5 Reasons to Celebrate 2021

5 Reasons to Celebrate 2021

  • DKA can be treated with Sub-Q insulin
  • There is a NEW home test to check for type 1 diabetes
  • We added over 50 new practice test questions to CDCES Coach App
  • New ADA Standards of Care address health inequities
  • Two COVID- Vaccines are being distributed

In this newsletter, we are excited to celebrate notable breakthroughs.

As a diabetes nurse for over 20 years, I assumed that the ONLY way to treat DKA was with an insulin drip. It turns out that a Sub-Q approach is as effective and safe. Investigate more about the steps involved in this approach in our featured article.

In the past, testing for type 1 diabetes required a provider order. Now, concerned family members can choose to get tested from home. Read more about this super easy screening test for type 1 diabetes.

Our rationale of the week brings Section 1 of the new ADA Standards on Population Health to light. This standard boldly addresses social determinants of health, with an intense focus on food insecurity and other barriers to self-care.

Lastly, this Monday, I was lucky enough to get my first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. I sported a sore arm for less than 24 hours and that was it. Now, I am anxiously cheering for all my family, friends, colleagues, and community to get this life-saving vaccination.

Stay safe everyone and don’t forget to get enough sleep!

Most Frequently Asked Exam Question – Which Standards to Study?

One of the most frequently asked questions about the CDCES Exam is the following:

Should I study this year’s ADA Standards of Care or last year’s ADA Standards of Care?

Coach Bev studying the Standards

In this years exam handbook, the CBDCE provided clarification on this high anxiety topic.

CBDCE Exam Content Update Policy

Immediately – New diagnostic criteria or specific guidelines impacting diabetes care and education and/or treatment of diabetes which are released nationally and identified as effective immediately may be including in the examination at any time.

One Year – New medical advances, guidelines, or pharmaceuticals will be included in CDCES Exam no sooner than one year after the information is released.

What does this mean for us?

I have already read and reviewed the 2020 ADA Standards of Care.

For more info, please refer to the 2021 Certification Examination Handbook

If you have already studied the ADA 2020 Standards of Care, you will be set for the 2021 CDCES Exam. Since there are no new diagnostic criteria or specific guidelines that are dramatically different from the 2020 Standards of Care.

The one exception is that there are updated diabetes management guidelines for the older population as outlined in our Older People Level 2 Course and you can review in the ADA Standards of Care, section 12.

Please see ADA Standards Summary of Revisions for more detailed information on updates for 2021.

I haven’t started reviewing the ADA Standards of Care.

Great. Please plan on studying the 2021 ADA Standards of Care, which includes all of the same content as the 2020 Standards with some additions and updates.

We are all rooting for your success! For More info:

December Newsletter | New Diabetes App, Winter Recipes, and a Sprinkling of Gratitude

Click here to read our full December newsletter.

Boy, am I looking forward to 2021.

The New Year brings hope – vaccines to curb the pandemic are around the corner and we keep improving our care for people with COVID infections.

But right now, my heart is heavy. I don’t feel like putting up holiday decorations and my cookie making motivation is at an all-time low.

The hospitals are bursting with people and I am worried about our medical colleagues and their mental and physical health.

I am concerned about the people we serve who live with diabetes, knowing that they are hit especially hard by Corona Virus infections.

Now, more than ever, I am leaning into my strong belief that our compassion, intelligence and humanity, will lift us out of this dark time into the light.

I feel grateful that my business has survived this harsh year. Me, Bryanna and our entire team, worked tirelessly to move all of our programs to a virtual format so that we could deliver critical content to our community.

We created new content on COVID and Diabetes, to help navigate these new uncharted waters. Knowing that many have been impacted financially by the pandemic, we are providing this course and many of our Level 2, Standards of Care Courses for free to ensure important information is accessible.

We believe that armed with information and tools, our community keeps making a significant difference in improving not only outcomes but the quality of life for those living with diabetes.

We are thankful for each one of you and the light you shine on our diabetes community.

In health and gratitude,

Coach Beverly, Bryanna and Jackson
