All areas of healthcare are special and have unique levels of importance but one particular field that requires highly technical skills is nephrology nursing. These dedicated men and women in scrubs give care for dialysis recipients. To be able to care and operate a complex dialysis machine, which substitutes most functions of the human kidneys, one must be highly trained, motivated, skilled, passionate, educated, and armored with patience—traits that will be honored during Nephrology Nurses Week.
The American Nephrology Nurses Association has designated Sept. 9-15 as Nephrology Nurses Week to honor nephrology nurses for their lifesaving work. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Aspire for Excellence.”
Nephrology nurses aspire to deliver the best possible care they can offer through trainings and continuing education. On the second week of September, as they celebrate Nephrology Nurses Week, it is time to put this team’s effort in the spotlight. (PR)
