M State’s Dialysis Technician certificate program trains students to work as part of a medical team in providing care to patients in outpatient dialysis centers, a fast-growing medical specialty.
The 16-credit Dialysis Technician program prepares technicians to operate and maintain the equipment used in hemodialysis, the process that removes waste from the blood of patients with renal failure and chronic kidney disease.
Working under the supervision of a registered nurse, the dialysis technician cares for dialysis patients and their families. The role of technicians includes preparing patients for dialysis, monitoring patients' progress and documenting treatment.
The program is offered on M State's Moorhead campus.
This program is not being offered until at least Spring 2017.
