New Grad In Dialysis, Yet Thinking of the Future...

  1. Hello Ya'll!!!
    I was hired at FMC and I like the environment, staff, and patients. As a single Mom of 3 teenagers-yes, you heard it right 3 of'um, I would like to know if in 2-3 years, will I be able to transfer my skills to other nursing disciplines? I have other aspirations and would welcome any feedback. Thanks, in advance...

    Best Regards,

    I will say that dialysis is very, very specialized. The transferable skills you will have:

    1. Assessment
    2. Dealing with emergencies
    3. Good understanding of acid-base balance
    4. Experience with central lines

    8/ Diabetic Care, comprehension and management skills
    9/ Knowledge of specialized diets
    10/ Multi-disciplinary team work
