If you are currently work as a Registered Nurse and interested in obtaining additional training to perform dialysis on patients, then you’ll need to know more about the training and educational requirements. Dialysis is a medical procedure performed on patients whose kidneys are not working properly. Your kidneys filter the waste in your body and when your kidneys are not performing their function, dialysis is performed to carry out their functions.
Dialysis Nurses are considered a specialty nursing area. Another term for this type of nursing is Nephrology Nursing. You must have a Registered Nurse certification, and be licensed in your state.
