Overview

Nephrology nurses use the nursing process to care for patients of all ages who are experiencing, or are at risk for, kidney disease.

This higher diploma program in nephrology nursing offered at the Catherine McAuley Nursing School, aims at imparting the skills required to operate as a nephrology nurse in Kenya.

Nephrology nursing involves both preventing disease and assessing the health needs of patients and families. Care spans the life cycle and involves patients who are experiencing the real or threatened impact of acute or chronic kidney disease; therefore nephrology nurses must be well-educated, highly skilled, and motivated. These nurses also deal with every organ system in the body, calling for a holistic approach to patient care that is both challenging and rewarding.

Since there may be a number of factors that affect the health of the kidneys, nephrology nurses will typically work with all variety of patient types, including children, adults, and other special population groups. If you’re considering a career in nephrology nursing, keep in mind that you will have many options to specialize in the field. You may choose to specialize in areas such as pediatric nephrology, for instance, or in specific kidney disease treatments, such as dialysis or transplantation.

Driven by technological and educational advances, nephrology nursing continues to be a dynamic field with a wide variety of career opportunities for nurses at all levels.
