Location: Orlando, Florida
The Diabetes Nurse Educator (RN, CDCES) works collaboratively as an active team member on the three-year grant funded project "Transdisciplinary Care for Young Adults with Type 1 Diabetes Transitioning to Adult Healthcare." The number of hours required will fluctuate and ranges from 2 to 10 hours per week. These numbers are approximate and may change. The physical location for the position is negotiable, however current RN licensure in the state of Florida is required.
This position is part of a three-member Transdisciplinary Care for Transition (TCT) team, including a transition coordinator (social worker) and clinical psychologist. The team, designed to support the transition to adult healthcare, meets jointly with young adults for three telehealth visits starting one month after the patient's last visit in pediatric T1D care at Nemours. The primary function of the Diabetes Nurse Educator is to provide education around gaps in diabetes knowledge that are relevant to transition, such as data interpretation, risk taking behaviors and their impact on diabetes care, and tips for communicating with adult healthcare providers.
