Nephrology Nursing & Health Care

Nephrology nurses use the nursing process to care for patients of all ages who are undergoing, or are at risk for, kidney disease.

Nephrology nursing involves both an inhibiting disease and an assessing the health needs of patients and families. Care spans the life cycle and involves patients who are facing the real or threatened impact of acute or chronic kidney disease; therefore, nephrology nurses must be well-educated, highly skilled, and motivated.
