As kidney failure continues to be a growing national health problem, kidney disease is driving the growing demand for well-trained dialysis technicians. Dialysis technicians are employed in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and other medical facilities. The number of dialysis technician jobs has the potential to increase by more than 35% by 2018. While most technician training has historically been done “on-the-job,” today’s healthcare employers are seeking well-trained technicians who possess the necessary knowledge and skills to fill this growing number of positions.
This Dialysis Technician Program provides students with the knowledge needed to perform the responsibilities of a Dialysis Technician. It reviews normal kidney physiology, the basic principles of hemodialysis, kidney dialysis machines, dialyzer preparation and reprocessing as well as how to assist dialysis patients in managing their disease and treatment. Our courses are highly interactive and provide students with an enriched learning experience.
