IT HAS BEEN 1 YEAR SINCE I HAVE WORKED AS A DIALYSIS TECH. GOING THROUGH THIS MODULE HAS HELPED ME REVIEW MY KNOWLEDGE OF KIDNEY FAILURE. I APPRECIATE THIS MODULE HITS THE IMPORTANT POINTS WITHOUT BOGGING THE READER DOWN WITH TOO MANY DETAILS. ALSO, I APPRECIATE THE PERSONAL STORY THAT WAS INCLUDED BECAUSE IT GIVES YOU A GLIMPSE OF WHAT SOMEONE WITH KIDNEY FAILURE GOES THROUGH.
