Training on Dialysis

I want to attend a training program on dialysis treatments.

Where can I train?

Which one offers the best training?

How much is the program fee?

How long is the training?

I've been looking on the website of National Kidney and Transplant Institute but can't find any info about it. If you can refer training centers and their contact numbers, I would highly appreciate them.

Thank you as always.

Please note that the Dialysis training done here in the PI is not accepted in the US if your purpose is the certification. Personally have friends that underwent these dialysis trainings and when they went to the US (to undergo AOS) and applied to one of the well known Dialysis center chains there they didn't accept it but they were told that they are more than willing to train them at no cost to them. He has no prior experience.

Friends who applied for an agency here in the PI (for consular processing) specializing in recruiting specifically for dialysis nurses was told the same and that they prefer 2 years experience instead of just a certification.

If you will be undergoing CP, I would recommend to check out the few agencies here that specializes in recruiting dialysis nurses. They almost always have the same requirement and they say the same thing. They want the 2 years experience instead while those who looks for direct employment in the US and have the ability to do AOS only needs to undergo the center's training program at no cost to them and they are already given the prevailing wage as a regular staff even though they are still under going the training program.

So, before undergoing any training programs here, make sure that you can actually use the certification they are giving out. Needless to say, all my friends wasn't able to use their certifications and while they never told me the exact fee for the training program, they always complained that it was very expensive and they all concurred that it was a waste of their time and money.

It is expensive. My friend underwent if for P8000 for 2 months. For her, she just wanted to keep her hands busy while waiting for the results of the local NLE.

Thanks stephensonwater. I already contacted NKTI and it costs 20k for a 6-month training. They will have one that will start sometime February next year.

To bonesgilmore, where did your friend train? I also heard of such 8k worth of training, but it's for 3 months. I am yet to inquire more about this. I hope you could provide me with more info. Thank you for the help.

Hi lawrence. I am aware of that fact. Thank you for the reminder and for always having a ready hand to anyone in need. I adore what you and suzanne do... It's just that I'm particularly interested in this field of nursing and I want to explore it and be a renal nurse someday, here or wherever.

I don't think learning will be a waste of time and money. As they say, knowledge is power.

Thanks again guys. God bless.

bebe13, the training is @ metropolitan hospital @ Masangkay, Sta. cruz, Manila. The recent one started last july 25 but maybe they have another one.

If that would be the case then you would be better of w/ NKTI than from some where else.

Hello try PKDF (Philippine Kidney Dialysis Foundation)

Dear fellow,

I am waiting for my us HI-B vis as a dialysis nurse. I am also confuse of where to get training here in the country (Philippines) on dialysis at a cheaper cost while waiting for my visa. Yes, I have no dialysis experience but I am currently working for almost two years in different clinical areas, except dialysis.

Though my sponsor told me that I will undergo training and seminar when I arrive in the US using their technical expertise and products for free as part of our contract ageement.

Thank you for any help.

Not sure how you are getting a H1b specialist visa as a dialysis nurse (that is what they are) and you have no experience in dialysis. This is wrong and classed as fraud and can lead to your visa being denied

The majority US Dialysis patients are cover by Medicare by ERSD clause of the law. Medicare monitors this program very carefully. A dialysis company to bring a foreign national over would have to prove that a person is a specialist and there are no Americans that can fill the position. The Dialysis companies can be liable for fines and possible criminal fines.

To those who are already here in the U.S. the HD training costs around $2,000.

These dialysis companies are also under the cap for the H1-B visas. Visa petitions for the H1-B are only accepted in April for a start the following October. One of the requirements for the H1-B is that the nurse is a specialist, if you have no experience as a dialysis nurse, then you do not meet the requirement for the H1-B visa to start with.

These visas are currently being reevaluated by the US government and all that have been issued are being reviewed.

Chances of getting one of the 65,000 HJ1-B visas is going to be quite small. Suggest that you do some reading here as to what is going on with the H1-B visas.

joy, may i know the name of your agency that sponsors H1B Visa?...any input is greatlly appreciated.

Philippine Kidney Dialysis Foundation. 5 weeks training. Fee ranges from 10 to 11k php, I guess. Plus you have a very high chance of getting hired if you applied and have the BLS, IVT and ACLS.

Please take the time to do some reading here. Chances of getting hired and brought to the US are actually quite slim now as well. The retrogression is now 2 years old this Friday. Any agency or employer needs to pay 100% of the fees and cannot charge any of it to the nurse either beforehand or during the time that they are working for them. Spending $7000 US to bring a nurse here and understanding that chances of them getting the H1-B are going to be quite slim. What an agency did in the past is most definitely not what is happening now, and once again, they need to prove that they could not find an American for the job.

Not sure what you are not understanding, but dialysis companies are not under the non-cap visas for the H1-B. Applications can only be submitted in April for an October date. The H1-b visas are currently being investigated by the US government as many went to people that did not meet the requirements for one. They also require that one is a specialist in their field, getting training and then coming to the US does not make one a specialist; actually far from it as training will be done again in the US.

The US is also in a bad financial mess, and any company is going to need to prove that they were unable to hire an American, and this is not going to work for most positions at this time.

do they accept under board bsn graduates? coz i heard that the ivt and acls trainings require a license. so im guessing that this program is strictly for rn's, am i correct?

they wont accept, basic requirments for dialysis training, YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED NURSE
