About Us: Overview


The Board of Nephrology Examiners Nursing Technology serves as a representative voice, urging legislative and regulatory movement toward meaningful training, certification and credentialing of all nephrology practitioners.

In addition, BONENT certification programs reflect its global status as the leading certification group worldwide of nephrology nurses and technologists/technicians. Examinations are conducted as far away as Singapore, Australia, Turkey and New Zealand.

BONENT membership is comprised of nurses and technicians who have received a passing score on a BONENT exam and are thereby certified. Members must recertify every four years. Today, over 7,000 nurses and technicians have met our criteria and are BONENT-certified.

Despite its impressive growth in recent years, BONENT remains largely a “grassroots” organization that relies upon the help of all of its members in order to sustain itself, thrive, and grow.
