The Nephrology Nursing - RPN certificate program is designed for registered practical nurses (RPNs) employed in and/or seeking to advance their practice in nephrology nursing. Students will learn nephrology nursing assessment and evidence-based nursing interventions, as well as how to develop collaborative and consultative partnerships with nephrology clients, their support systems and other healthcare practitioners. Practice specialties include the care of patients with kidney disease, peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, renal transplantation as well as pharmacology. Students will also develop high-level critical thinking, care planning, leadership and professional practice skills.
This certificate is based on the Canadian Nurse Association (CNA) competencies for nephrology nurses and the standards for nephrology nursing by the Canadian Council of Nephrology Nurses.
