The Dialysis Technician is highly trained to perform as a team in a dialysis facility or where needed and in the blood Lab or Clinic. The technician in professionally trained to maintain the equipment according to regulation, but also in the procedures of hemodialysis of patients in kidney failure or insufficiency. The program is designed to meet both the required academic and clinical experience needed for the student to succeed in passing the course and prepared to take a national certification exam. Our goal is to prepare the Dialysis Technician to give safe and expert hemodialysis to the community by working in hemodialysis clinics, hospital bedside hemodialysis and home care hemodialysis. This course will also prepare the student to function efficiently as a Phlebotomist with the ability to perform venipuncture in order to obtain specimens and to properly handle and process laboratory specimens.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
  • “I am so proud of myself. I was one out of three that passed my skills test on my first try and it’s all because of my teachers at The Healthcare Institute.

    I feel that the way I was taught is really going to make a difference in the world.”

  • “Mr. Bill Moyer was my instructor, and I learned a lot from him.  I discovered the correct way to do things.  The clinical information is important, but you also learn to put the patient first.  Mr. Moyer was very kind, but also demanded that we do things the right way.  It was difficult, but the reward was a CNA certification and a position with St. Luke’s Baptist Hospital a month after graduation. Not everyone graduates, but those that do leave with a marketable skill. Because of Mr. Moyer and the staff, my life was changed.  It has been truly a blessing to be a part of their success.”
