Diabetes Continuing Education: Equipping Nurse Practitioners to Help Improve the Health of Patients at High COVID-19 Risk

A female NP treats a female patient for diabetes

Diabetes is an evolving, complex disease that can involve a number of treatment options, and nurse practitioners (NPs) are integral members of a patient’s diabetes health care team.

Together, we continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic abroad and here at home. For NPs on the front lines, understanding how the disease impacts patients is of paramount importance — especially for those patients who are at higher risk of contracting severe illness.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes may put people at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. While COVID-19 research is ongoing and guidelines continue to be developed, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) does provide a number of continuing education (CE) activities — available at no cost or at significantly discounted rates for members — to help NPs continue to care for their patients with diabetes, now and in the future.
