Dialysis Technician Credential


In 2001, the Kentucky General Assembly passed House Bill 184 establishing authority for the Kentucky Board of Nursing to regulate dialysis technician practice, training, and credentialing.  A Dialysis Technician Advisory Council was established to help facilitate the program.
