Advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) are entering into nephrology practice still in need of a solid nephrology foundation. This program provides a great introduction into the entire spectrum of nephrology – from starting your practice to pathophysiology, renal pharmacology, preparing your patient to begin a renal replacement therapy (RRT), and managing the various modalities of RRT. You’ll leave this program with a notebook full of information!
