Enthusiastic? Want to do more, learn more, and grow professionally? It Starts with a Spark is an excellent session that will help you begin your journey towards nursing excellence. Is There an App for That reviews new apps for CKD and dialysis patients and professionals, expanding on how technology can enhance our learning and knowledge with just "one touch." The last three sessions included in this package are clinical topics that nephrology nurses need to stay clinically relevant - all about the Peri,Endo and Myocarditis -how you assess the patient and treat them with these cardiac issues, and a new clinical procedure, lipid apheresis -when to do it, and what does the nephrology nurse need to know. And of course, blood transfusions are again surging, and with that comes some concern and confusion - this hot list can give you what you need to know....when you need to know it, now!
