Endocrinology & Diabetes

Endocrine and diabetes nursing is a specialty focused on preventing and treating conditions related to the organs and glands that produce hormones. The endocrine organs and glands include the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands, pineal body, ovaries, testes, and pancreas. The most common endocrine disorder is diabetes mellitus. Like other nursing specialties, a profession in endocrine nursing requires an understanding of normal anatomy and physiology, keen assessment and monitoring skills, vast knowledge about endocrine disease and conditions, and ongoing education related to recommended prevention methods and treatment options. Endocrinology is a broad specialty where nurses may work in inpatient or outpatient settings, care for medical or surgical patients, and see patients through acute illness or help them manage chronic disease.
