I Just Got Hired At A Renal Clinic

  1. I just got hired at a Renal Clinic at first I thought it was in dialysis but it is not. It is a M-F with no weekends, holidays, and no on-call. I am so excited. I have been looking for a position like this. I have been working for the past 8 years in LTC and I am looking for any advice as to is there anything that I need to brush up on? I have been told that I will have to obtain an ACLS Certification and Chemotherapy Certification. I have six months to complete obtain them. Are those classes hard? Thanks in Advance for any advice.

    Wondering what this clinic is, if not dialysis? Or did you mean it's peritonial dialysis, not hemodialysis? Makes me wonder why you need chemo and ACLS. Just curious! We use a chemo-drug to "jump-start" whats left of peoples kidneys, so should have basic chemo training for that. Good luck with the new job.

    Thanks for the reply...I was saying that it is a Renal Clinic like a doctors office except it is part of a big hospital.
