Diagnostic and interventional nephrology is a growing subspecialty of nephrology. Increasingly, procedural care of nephrology patients is being managed by nephrologists trained in this area. As a result, new opportunities have been created for nephrology nurses as they assist these interventionists in the administration of care in diagnostic and interventional nephrology. This article describes the components of a diagnostic and interventional nephrology program, the initiation of such a program at a university center, and the role of nephrology nursing personnel in this rapidly developing area.
