Course Overview
Dialysis technicians primarily work in doctors' offices and hospitals, but some provide treatment to patients in their own homes. Primarily, hemodialysis technicians administer dialysis treatment, but there is much more to know than that. They must know how to set up, monitor, and clean the equipment, create and maintain a sterile environment, and provide preparation, education, and comfort to their patients.

As a hemodialysis technician, students will  be able to measure basic vital signs, recognize different types of kidney disease, and know the different medications available to dialysis patients as well as how diet plays a hand in treating kidney disease.


This Dialysis Technician program covers:

  • Effectively work with patients, educating and preparing them, and comforting them during stressful procedures
  • Setting up, monitoring, and administering dialysis treatment
  • The organs of the renal system and their basic functions
  • Medical terminology, blood draw procedures, and more

The course includes images, exercises, learning games, and highly interactive simulations to prepare students to work as a hemodialysis technician.
