Queensborough Community College offers two training programs:

Training 1 - Hemodialysis Technician Training Program:

Hemodialysis Technician Training Program

Hemodialysis technicians work together with doctors, registered nurses (R.N.s) and licensed practical nurses (L.P.N.s) to provide direct patient care to people undergoing chronic hemodialysis treatment due to renal failure.

Hemodialysis removes waste products from the blood. During hemodialysis, blood is removed from the patient's body, cycled through an artificial kidney, and then returned to the patient.

The hemodialysis technician initiates hemodialysis treatment either by inserting a needle into a patient's blood vessel or by attaching the hemodialysis tubing to a catheter in the patient's chest. The hemodialysis technician also discontinues treatment, monitors patient status and vital signs, obtains blood samples, and documents the care provided.

Hemodialysis Technician Training Program

The technician is responsible for equipment management, including programming, cleaning and monitoring the hemodialysis machines. The technician must also have an in-depth understanding of the facility's water treatment system and monitors this system as part of patient safety.

Training 2 - 5G Mobile Technician Training Program:

5G Mobile Technician Training Program
