Whatever field of Nursing gives your friend the most satisfaction... is what your friend should do. Check with the local dialysis clinics and find out what their requirements are.

Peace:)

Yes... at least where I work, new grads are DEFINATELY welcome.

Because they are sent to a 2-6 wk. intensive course (classroom) and then are trained at the clinic on the floor. No problem there. Different companies may vary in how they do things, but check it out.

Hi I am also interested in dialysis nursing when I graduate in May 2003. I know some places are accepting new grads and want to train new grads. Some say 1 year experience with nursing prefered but that doesn't always mean anything. I know a cool website that lists jobs in certain states or nationwide. http://www.brumley.com/renal I am inquiring throught the internet about jobs but I may try to pass the boards first to get my RN before trying to learn all of the new material for dialysis nursing. I think it would be wise to do the boards first so that you don't have to worry about studying for that and doing an intense training program. Best of luck!
