AKF Salutes Nephrology Nurses

The second week of September is Nephrology Nurses Week, and the American Kidney Fund is joining our partner, the American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA), in a nationwide salute to the nurses who care for patients with kidney disease and provide life-saving care each day.

ANNA has chosen the theme “Nephrology Nurses Take Action” for this year’s celebration. The theme highlights the way nephrology nurses use their vision, knowledge and skills to take action and improve patient outcomes. Caring for kidney patients requires nurses to be highly skilled, well educated and motivated, and nephrology nurses cite the variety and challenges of the specialty as fueling their ongoing passion.

ANNA launched Nephrology Nurses Week in 2005 to give employers, patients and others an opportunity to thank nephrology nurses for their life-saving work. In addition, ANNA also hopes to spark interest in other nurses about the multifaceted career opportunities available in nephrology. One of the most diverse nursing specialties practiced today, nephrology nurses care for patients of all ages who have, or are at risk for, kidney disease.

More information about the work of nephrology nurses and Nephrology Nurses Week is available at
