I have been an RN working in the hospital setting for 13 years - mostly in pediatrics and PICU, and lately med-surg. I am tired of the entire "hospital experience." I am considering training to become a hemodialysis nurse. I have been in the hospital setting so long, and I'm a little afraid to venture out and try something else - but I really want to! I'd like some comments from current dialysis nurses and their experiences compared to any previous areas they have worked. I have no idea what being a dialysis nurse entails and what the actual day-to-day work is like. Thanks for your input!
