This Dialysis Technician Program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to perform the duties required of dialysis technicians. Dialysis technicians are employed in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and other medical facilities. This course covers the following key areas and topics: specific procedures to operate kidney dialysis machines, preparation of the dialyzer, reprocessing and delivery systems, equipment maintenance, and skills to monitor and record a patient’s vital signs. Note: This program is designed to cover the key objectives of the leading dialysis technician certification exams. Although some students do immediately pursue certain certifications, most national exams require job experience for formal dialysis technician certification. Additionally there is no student internship or clinical rotation offered as part of this program. Students who pass this course will receive a certificate of completion.
Tuition includes 6-months access to online course.
