Dialysis Technicians are in Demand!

After you receive a Dialysis Technician Diploma from the Manhattan Institute, you will be trained to work in hospitals, dialysis centers/facilities, some nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and long term care facilities.

The employment outlook for Dialysis Technicians is a positive one. Although the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics does not have a listing for this specific specialization, the other categoies within the medical technician and nursing assistant fields are expected to grow in the next few years.

The Dialysis Technician Program at Manhattan Institute is designed to prepare you for employment in a growing occupation. The link below will take you to the U.S. Department of Labor's "O*Net" site, which contains a large amount of information about the general nursing assistant occupation and related technician occupations.

Ask The Director:

Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about our Dialysis Technician program. Please call or email us if you have any other questions, or would like additional information regarding any of our programs. We'll be glad to hear from you!

What is a Dialysis Technician? 

Under supervision, Dialysis Technicians operate machines and perform dialysis on patients with acute or chronic kidney failure.  Dialysis removes waste products and fluids from a patient's blood and vascular system in patients whose kidneys are not adequately removing those toxinns. Dialysis Technicians function under the direction of nurses and physicians.  This specialized training is also appropriate for Medical Assistants, Licensed Practical Nurses, RN’s EMT’S, Patient Care Technicians, CNA’s, Phlebotomists, and anyone interested in a medical health career.

Should I have a special interest to be a Dialysis Technician?

If you have an interest in science and technology and also like working with people, then consider a career as a Dialysis Technician. Dialysis Technicians give patients important social and emotional support and also provide vital information on patient conditions to nurses, doctors, and other medical staff.  Because Dialysis Technicians can often have frequent and long-term interactions with the same patients, this is considered by many to be a very rewarding career.
