Kentucky Moves to Require Licensure for Diabetes Educators

Gov. Steve Beshear signed Kentucky's Diabetes Educators Licensure statute on March 16. In Kentucky, licensed dietitians will still be able to practice dietetics, including counseling clients with diabetes, without taking the Core Concepts Course to become a Licensed Diabetes Educator. The law requires a license to practice diabetes education, a move supported by the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). What does this mean for registered dietitians?

The legislation allows those to become licensed who complete the Core Concepts Course and demonstrate experience in the care of people with diabetes under supervision that meets requirements specified by the board. Other options for qualification for licensure may include completing the credentialing program of the AADE or the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators. Similar legislation has been introduced in Indiana and AADE is advocating for licensure in all 50 states.

Certified Diabetes Educators must complete a 1,000-hour curriculum to qualify; however, the requirements to become a Licensed Diabetes Educator in Kentucky will include less rigorous requirements.

ADA's Legislative and Public Policy Committee will work with the Diabetes Care and Education DPG to review the issue. To find out if your state has initiated similar legislation, visit CQ State Track.
