BONENT is an international organization for certification of nephrology professionals. It regulates training, certification, and credentialing of all nephrology practitioners. Aside from any requirements by any state lisencing authorities, an RN who wish to be certified as a nephrology nurse in the US must have a 1 year experience in nephrology and must be currently practising in an ESRD facility. All experience must be verified by your immediate supervisor and the other from a professional (e.g. a mentor in the field of nephrology). You can choose whether you might want to be certified as a hemodialysis nurse (CHN), a peritoneal dialysis nurse (CPDN) or a technician (CHT). You need not worry because the examination is given on other parts of the world. Aside from the US, exams are given in Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Turkey and to other growing list of countries.
