Dialysis Technicians

There should continue to be a need for dialysis technicians in the future as the number of people with kidney disease and failure increases. The National Kidney Foundation reports that 26 million U.S. adults—about one in nine people—have chronic kidney disease.

This steadily increasing number of patients in need will mean a continued demand for dialysis technicians.
