Would dialysis training received in the Philippines be recognized in the U.S.? What are the requirements to qualify to work as a dialysis nurse in the U.S.?
Dear Donna replies:
Im sure your dialysis training and experience will be recognized in the U.S. Although every employer is different, privately owned outpatient dialysis companies regularly hire nurses without dialysis experience. Hospitals and inpatient facilities might prefer some past experience or training, which you apparently have.
To learn more about this specialty and network with other nurses working in dialysis or nephrology, visit the American Nephrology Nurses Association website (www.annanurse.org).
Prepare for the CNN/CDN exam with the Nephrology Nursing & Dialysis Nursing Certification Review Course.
