Nurse Hemodialysis Training

Are you looking for a way to move up in your nursing career or add new skills in dialysis?

Nurse Hemodialysis training allows students to learn via classroom participation, practice with dialysis equipment, and then participate in dialysis centers under the supervision and direction of practicing nurses. This program highlights organs and functions of the renal system, renal failure/ESRD, Uremia, psychosocial aspects of renal failure, infection control and standard precautions, procedural clinical proficiency, extracorporeal circuit, and water treatments. Students participate in classroom instruction, simulation lab, and clinical observation.

Hemodialysis nurses are in demand at dialysis clinics and centers, hospitals, nephrologist offices, nursing homes, cruise ship companies and at home care. Hemodialysis nurses can transform their career direction by securing jobs as supervisors, head nurses, educators or case managers. APRNs can move to executive, academic or research roles.
