Renal nursing is a multi-dimensional approach to the care and management of those with kidney disease, as well as for those who are at risk of developing kidney disease. There are a variety of emerging issues that revolve around early diagnosis, slowing progression, medication management, racial disparities and management of comorbidities associated with renal nursing. Due to the increase in those living with kidney disease, current practice is aimed at developing and implementing an evidence-based model of care.
