Welcome to dialysis! So far my experience is going good overall. I just finished my 4th week of training. I’m in a outpatient chronic hemodialysis center that has 43 chairs and runs 3 shifts Monday, Wednesday, Friday. My training consists of “class” on Mondays and being in the clinic on Wednesday and Friday for the first 6 weeks then the schedule will change for the last 6 weeks. So far I can set up the machines and get them through test mode, start to work up a patient (still need help calculating the numbers), pre and post nursing assessments (our LPNs can’t assess), and I’m learning to pull needles post treatment). Getting checked off on meds and cannulation (sticking the needles) will come a bit later in the training per the education coordinator. It’s overwhelming since it’s fast paced at times and I learn at a slower pace but I think I’ll get it eventually...well I hope so!
