Recognising the important role played by nurses in the care of patients with renal disease, the Nursing Chapter of the Society was officially formed in 2005 to assume the responsibility of educating and representing the interests of the nursing members of the Society. The founding Chair was Theresa Soh of the Kidney Dialysis Foundation.


The Chapter organises the annual Renal Update for Nurses and also ad-hoc talks by visiting experts. In 2007, the Nursing Day Seminar was introduced to commemorate Nurses’ Day. The Seminar is held annually in August and combines scientific and social activities. The scientific component comprises of an Oral Presentation Competition and a Quiz, whilst the social component has, in the past, included a telematch and a talent quest.
