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.


EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY 1, 2021 - A NEW PROCESS FOR STATE AND FEDERAL (FINGERPRINTING) BACKGROUND CHECKS

State and Federal Background Checks 

All applicants will need to register via the UEnroll website utilizing our Service Code (27GKJR). You will are now able to complete both the state and federal (fingerprinting) background checks through this service.
