Nephrology Nursing & Health Care

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

Nephrology has been recognized as a specialty for over 35 years. In 1973, treatment for end stage kidney disease (ESRD) by haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, or transplantation was funded by the federal government through the Social Security program making ESRD the only disease-caused disability and became more readily available. As a result, the role of the nephrology nurse grew in scope, practice boundaries broadened, and the number of nephrology nurses climbed steadily.

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.
