The Triton College School of Continuing Education, Center for Health Professionals (CECHP), received the prestigious Collaboration Award from the American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA). Triton was presented with the recognition at the ANNA’s 2024 Annual Symposium held last month in Orlando, Florida. In partnership with ANNA, Triton developed the Nephrology Certification Exam Preparation course to assist medical professionals (dialysis technicians and registered nurses) with passing their board certifications. The course provided ANNA with an opportunity to continue its Nephrology Nursing Certification Review Program halted during the pandemic. ANNA had been offering the course consistently since 2008. With Triton’s well-established Hemodialysis Technician course and its Nursing Program, the ANNA approached Doligosa to see if they could utilize Triton’s space. With Doligosa’s assistance, ANNA constructed a course that met Illinois Continuing Education guidelines and submitted a proposal to the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB). Formal test questions were provided for each section of the class that aligned with the graduating system of Triton. The course was approved in January 2023 and held in April 2023. The program was repeated in November 2023, with six RNs enrolling in the class. All students plan on taking the certification test within the next six months.
