Since dialysis and transplant are often not included in clinical rotations at schools of nursing, nursing students may know little about the specialty of nephrology. With recent increases in nursing school enrollment and difficulty in procuring clinical sites, dialysis units can provide excellent medical-surgical, community, and leadership clinical experiences for students. Learn how to use this opportunity to recruit student nurses into our profession and foster knowledge of all modalities for nurses who enter other specialties.
