As a FNP, you will discover, treat and maintain many patients with chronic kidney disease. What are the categories of CKD (GFR)? Document what causes chronic kidney failure (CKF) and the guideline for diagnostics. What are the risk factors and how would you address cardiac, dietary, metabolic, and hematologic management? Also, note which medications should not be used, or used with caution. Use your Buttaro textbook along with at least one other source for your information.
Review the Chronic Kidney Failure Rubric in the syllabus for assignment requirements.
