Connecticut Dialysis Training


Like many other states, becoming a certified dialysis technician in the state of Connecticut is becoming a little more demanding than it was just a few years ago.  To become a certified patient care dialysis technician means that a nationally renowned examination must be taken and passed.  These examinations would include one of the following……

The NNCO, an examination offered via the National Nephrology Certification Organization,
The CCHT, or the Nephrology Nursing Certification Commission, or
The CHT, an exam offered by teh Board of Nephrology Examiners for nursing and technology.

To become certified, one of these examinations must be taken and passed.  See this article for which examination may be most suitable for you.

Of course, working with something as delicate as the kidney, one would expect a properly certified tech to perform the task.  And states are responding to this expectation – and rightfully so.  Also, the requirement for certification doesn’t depend on the place of employment.  Both hospitals and stand-alone dialysis shops will require an examination to have been done.

To be eligible for one of the above examinations, you should in most cases have a high-school diploma.  Many states offer exemptions on this requirement, so you’ll need to check with your state to make sure of the education requirement before taking one of the three exams above.  Each of the exams are in a multiple-choice format and will generally take about three to four hours to complete.  Again, check each of the examination links above to get more info on that.

Dialysis Training centers in Connecticut will generally be found in Meriden, in Bridgeport at the Bridgeport Dialysis training Center, at the Hartford Hospital, and at New haven Dialysis – to name a few.  Do a search on some of these and see what comes up.  Good luck!
