What is a Diaysis Nurse?

Dialysis nursing falls within the field of nephrology, which is the field of medicine that focuses on the kidneys. Dialysis nurses, also known as nephrology nurses, are registered nurses who specialize in the clinical purification of blood through dialysis, which is the procedure used to clean the blood of patients with kidney disease or other kidney-related issues. Dialysis is a life-saving procedure for patients whose kidneys no longer filter out toxins from their blood.

Nephrology nursing is recognized as a specialty that includes dialysis nurses who are skilled at aiding patients with kidney-related medical problems. This is a highly rewarding career track with diverse opportunities to maximize the independence and quality of life for patients of all ages with kidney disease. According to the American Nephrology Nurses Association, professional opportunities for nephrology nurses are expanding and growing in all settings with the shortage of dialysis nurses exacerbated by the increase in demand for dialysis services.

Dialysis nursing is one of the most in-demand specialties on Vivian with hundreds of jobs for dialysis nurses available nationwide.

Primary duties of a dialysis RN include:

  • Ensuring proper set up of the dialysis machine and equipment

  • Assessing patients before and after dialysis procedure

  • Checking/Recording vital signs before, during, and after dialysis

  • Monitoring for adverse reactions throughout the procedure

  • Notifying physicians of any problems that occur during dialysis

  • Documenting treatments in patient files

  • Preparing and updating nursing care plans

  • Answering patient questions and concerns

  • Educating patients and their families about treatment options, disease management, and suitable nutrition and exercise programs

How to become a Dialysis Travel Nurse?

Dialysis travel nurses must be registered nurses, which requires an associate degree or Bachelor of Science in nursing from an accredited nursing program. Graduates must pass the NCLEX-RN licensing exam, fulfill all licensing requirements within their practice state, and earn Basic Life Support for Healthcare Professionals and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support certifications. Although not required, prospective employers often prefer candidates with certification from the Nephrology Nursing Certification Committee.  The NNCC offers Certified Dialysis Nurse certification with at least 2,000 hours of experience providing care to nephrology patients and Certified Nephrology Nurse certification with at least 3,000 hours of nephrology experience. Most travel nurse assignments require candidates to have at least one year of experience, but most prefer two years’ experience for specialties like dialysis nursing.

What skills make a good Dialysis nurse?

A dialysis nurse requires specialized knowledge and skills in nephrology, including sophisticated technical skills to operate required equipment. Dialysis patients often also have several other medical conditions, so dialysis nurses must have strong analytical skills and acute attention to detail to effectively manage each patient’s various conditions. This also requires good collaboration skills to coordinate a patient’s care with the rest of their health care team. To connect with and motivate patients, dialysis RNs must have a positive attitude filled with compassion and empathy. Good communication and leadership skills are also tremendous assets while providing education to patients and their families.

Where do Dialysis nurses work?

Dialysis nurses frequently work within the nephrology departments at hospitals. They may also work at dialysis centers and freestanding clinics that specifically offer hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis services. Transplant programs, home health care agencies, nursing homes, and hospice centers also sometimes employ dialysis nurses. Some patients hire dialysis nurses to help administer dialysis treatments in the privacy of their homes.

What does a Dialysis nurse do?

Nephrology nurses work in a team-oriented environment and use their nursing skills and knowledge to provide primary, secondary, and tertiary care to patients with acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, and other conditions that require dialysis. Nurses typically administer either hemodialysis, which uses a machine, or peritoneal dialysis, which uses a fluid. Throughout the procedure, the dialysis nurse medicates, monitors, and supports the patient, while educating them on kidney disease and effectively managing their disease through appropriate lifestyle choices.
