    Thank you for the info sir rogue.. If the training would last for four months and do progress to being staff nurses it would really be worth the fee.. and the waiting.. Please do inform us if you have additional info especially regarding the training dates.

    Actually I had previous HD training but it wasn't worth it because it lasted only for 5 weeks and costs 9k. And there were only 6 machines and 12 of us trainees in the HD unit. So the Head Nurse assigned half of us on an MWF schedule and the other half on TThS. So in the end we didn't get the exposure we wanted. Don't get me wrong, the instructors were great and they thought us a lot. I even got the chance to cannulate patients. It's just that the length of training wasn't really enough. That's why I want to retrain and hopefully get hired.. I think I'll wait for the NSPI's new training program.. It sounds promising. Again thank you sir rogue.

    You are very much welcome. In nephro group, you have to complete cannulation and dialysis catheter cases too. That's 100 cannulation (yes, one hundred), 10 catheter treatment initiation and 10 catheter termination. That's what I've undergone before. With the restructuring I have yet to find out if this practice carries over since they might adapt a curriculum from the US.

    100 cannulation? Whoa.. I've done only 5 from my previous training. Well I think that's fair enough. As they say, "practice makes perfect". I'm very excited now. The patients I've cannulated said I have a very light hand and that they didn't feel any discomfort. And I thought it was a good thing that's why I wanted to pursue my career in hemodialysis.

    I applied at Delos Santos Medical center together wth my friend last February 21 i think? Then, they sent us a text message saying to come back at the 24th for the exam. It was 100 items, really hard. They told us they will contact us on or before March 15 if we were able to pass the exam. I think my friend and I passed, they contacted us this week. We should go back for our Psychometric exams. =) after that, the interview will take place then training comes next. Good luck everyone! Let's keep on applying!!!

    I understand what you mean. I had my hemodialysis training for 5 weeks, and I feel like I still have so much to learn! We did get the chance to cannulate as well but I wanted to perfect it. Although we were assigned at 3 to 4 patients per trainee (they were severely understaffed) and we basically did everything except cannulating irritable patients. Apparently, the previous trainees gave them the impression that all trainees are bad at cannulation and they always refuse when it's our turn. But there are patients who are kind enough to let us cannulate them.

    I want to get another hemodialysis training soon, but from another institution. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed and learned a lot from PKDF, but if you don't extend your training (extra payment), you won't master your skills.

    Hi kayfrn! Are you a graduate of Delos Santos? I'm not but I sure hope they are still accepting applicants. Thanks for the info



    Hi caisaki! Yeah you're right.. If we're really serious about hemodialysis we need to master our skills.. And sadly that also means paying another institution for additional training.. By the way I heard that you can volunteer at FMC if you've had 1 year experience as a bed nurse. No need to pay them So I'm currently looking for hospitals accepting applicants or volunteers before pursuing my dream career as HD nurse

    Hi nurseharbee,

    I noticed RENAP is getting more strict with the requirements for accreditation. Good job!

    I would also like to suggest that maybe RENAP and renal centers/hospitals that conduct dialysis nursing training would come up with a standard program or curriculum so as every aspiring renal nurse would receive the same theoretical and practical training regardless of on which institution he/she takes it. That way, renal nursing organization or council abroad would be more lenient in recognizing Filipino nurses' RENAP accreditation to qualify for reciprocity to that country's renal nursing certification.

    I realized this when I came here in South America to work. They wouldn't recognize my RENAP papers and just based on the length of my experience in dialysis nursing to let me work in the dialysis unit. The country where I'm in is a former Dutch colony and they only recognize renal certifications from the Netherlands and from islands of the Dutch Caribbean, as well as from the US and European countries in general.

    Filipino nurses have a very good reputation around the world, based on experience, skill and professionalism. But on certain specialties like renal nursing, certifications not being recognized by some countries make the scope of practice of pinoy nurses in those countries limited, thus also limiting career growth and advancement.

    I hope they will accept soon. Any ideas if any dialysis center(s) are open for training? I am willing to pay for the training. I want to be exposed in a special area like this. =)
