This Certification Review Course is a modular course designed to prepare the Nephrology Nurse to successfully complete and pass the Certification Review Exam. There are three exams – The Certified Nephrology Nurse, The Certified Dialysis Nurse, and The Certified Advanced Practice Nurse. The person utilizing this course will progress through the modules at their own pace, and as often as needed, to increase their confidence in being able to pass their specific exam.
The content includes information specific to Nephrology Nursing, including specific modules on Chronic Kidney Disease and Acute Kidney Injury, as well as modules on each modality used as a replacement for kidney function, which all individuals will find helpful for their own review no matter which exam they are to take. There are also modules on other aspects of caring for patients with kidney dysfunction. The Advanced Practice Nurse will also find some modules specific to the role that they play in planning and implementing care for patients in all phases of chronic kidney disease.
It is thought, as well, that this course could be used for orientation for nurses new to nephrology, even when not specifically preparing for a certification exam.
Note: Modules 5 and 6 will be recorded on October 15th, and made available by October 22nd.
