LPN in hemodialysis

  1. I've been working in LTC for just 9 mos and I'm thinking of going to a specialty..specifically dialysis.

    Do I need a special training or education for that or will they train me?

    What does an LPN do in hemodiaysis?

    Thanks!

    I was hired as a new grad for the facility I work for, they trained me for 8-10 weeks. Lpns are allowed to cental line dressing changes, give boluses and certain med pushes. It can be v. stressful at times, and physically demanding.
