Dialysis Technology program off to a great start at SCC

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

This August, nine students completed the second Dialysis Technology class at Southeastern Community College. The program began in March 2016 after DaVita donated training equipment to SCC.

Most of the students have a family member or know someone on dialysis and felt that completing this class would allow them to understand what they are going through. Many of the class participants also came from a nurse aide background and were looking to enhance their skills.

All students expressed how much they learned in the classroom and at clinicals and how prepared they felt to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to assist dialysis patients. Several of the students have already secured employment or interviews with area dialysis treatment centers.

The next Dialysis Technology cohort will begin August 23.
