Boot Camp 1 focused on tasks necessary to prepare a patient for discharge. Boot Camp 2 focused on the role of the inpatient nurse who is caring for a patient who was admitted with their own insulin pump and/or glucose sensor.

Prior Diabetes Boot Camp classes have also not included this information.
