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 and skills needed to perform the duties required of dialysis technicians. This program is designed to cover the key objectives of the leading certification exams. Note: Most national exams require prior job experience for formal dialysis technician certification.
