Education Modules

These modules have been developed by the American Nephrology Nurses' Association (ANNA) to provide the nephrology nurse with education and tools to address key nursing care needs and discuss critical issues with patients and their families.


Chronic Kidney Disease: What Every Nurse Should Know

This series is designed to support the learning needs of nurses who care for nephrology patients in alternative settings. The modules address the nursing care needs of the chronic kidney disease (CKD) patient in settings outside of nephrology or dialysis. Given the magnitude of the population afflicted with CKD and the variety of settings in which these patients are found, the contents of each module will be of benefit to nurses caring for nephrology patients in many settings. The following modules are available:

  • Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease - Hemodialysis in the Long Term Care Setting
  • Stage 3 & 4 Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Stage 1 & 2 Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease - Pediatrics: Children Have Kidney Failure Too
  • Chronic Kidney Disease - The Post Transplant Patient
  • Chronic Kidney Disease: Nursing Guidelines for Patient Education
