As a nephrology nurse working in dialysis, I think it's great that you want to do this. We have a tech at the clinical that had a transplant and now works in field. The patients love him and his knowledge of both sides.
Quincy takes everyone that applies as long as you have the basic criteria met for application. The school is chaotic as far as clinical placements go but if you want a guarantee to start in the September apply there. I'm a third semester student and it's not awful.
