Dialysis Nurse Resume

Dialysis Nurses, also known as nephrology or urology nurses are Registered Nurses working in general hospitals, dialysis clinics or private medical practices. Their main responsibilities include providing medical care and constant attention to patients suffering from severe kidney problems and who must have dialysis. Apart from extended medical knowledge and experience in handling patients with renal disorders, these nurses must be able to operate dialysis equipment and react promptly in case of malfunction.
