Hemodialysis Program Welcome


Hope this email finds you and your family well and safe. {Please read this page all the way to the bottom. There are important details about your training program}


Congratulations! I am so deeply honored and thrilled that you’re joining our Hemodialysis Program!!

Your official start date is: September 14th, 2020.

This program is a true game-changer and it’s become the heart and soul of our school.
Our Hemodialysis Program is custom-designed for service providers and heart-centered people like you who are deeply committed to making a difference in the Dialysis community.

Our hemodialysis patients need more educated, prepared, and compassionate healthcare members that are willing to understand and take good care of them. If you’ve ever had a conversation with a Dialysis patient you know they are regular, people just like you or me, that happen to have a chronic illness.​

​This is YOUR TIME!​

​The road ahead will be exciting, uncomfortable, challenging, and ultimately, one of the richest and valuable experiences ever.​

​And, we’ll be with you every step of the way!​

​Please take a moment and really acknowledge yourself for listening to your heart and investing in YOU!!!

These are an example of the things you will learn in our Hemodialysis Program:

Vascular accesses.

There are three different vascular accesses for Hemodialysis. We will study them all and you will have the opportunity to touch and listen to real-life fistula from a patient.

Infection control and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).

This topic is one of the core values of our program.

Dialysis Machines.

You will be able to practice the machine setup and connections in our simulation lab at the training center.

I hope you’re ready to learn a lot during our fun and interesting class.
