PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES
Upon completion of the Renal Dialysis program students will be able to:
INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES, DESIGN AND DELIVERY MODE
This is a full-time face-to-face program. Days and hours may vary. The clinical placement may include some early mornings and evenings.
The program consists of two courses: theory and clinical. The theory course is delivered through classroom instruction, group discussions, case-studies, and simulations. Students apply theoretical knowledge in the clinical practicum, which takes place in hospital or community dialysis clinics. The clinical course is delivered through clinical instruction and supervision, observation and assessment, daily post-clinical conferences and reflective journaling.
Eight weeks of full-time study. Both courses must be completed simultaneously in order to graduate.
EVALUATION OF STUDENT LEARNING
Evaluations will be done throughout the program. In the theory course, evaluations will be based on case-studies, assignments, quizzes, and a final exam. The clinical practicum is evaluated by instructor observation, assessment of practical skills, and reflective journaling.
Students must achieve at least B- in the theory course (RENL 1001) and an S in the clinical course (RENL 1002) in order to complete the program. All assignments in the clinical course must be successfully completed and students must achieve at least three out of four on every competency on the final competency evaluation in order to pass the clinical course. If students do not successfully complete the theory or the clinical course they will not be readmitted into the program without approval of the department leader.
The Renal Dialysis Technician Program is an applied program where students learn the hands-on skills of dialysis on a daily basis. Students are recommended to attend all classes in order to complete the program successfully.
VCC welcomes applications from Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
