Which is better for dialysis, a dialysis nurse or a home health nurse?

Dialysis: A specially trained nurse in dialysis would be best given the high level of expertise needed during the dialysis process.
Dr. Linda Gromko
Family Medicine 48 years experience
For the questioner's benefit, did you know that a person can be trained to perform dialysis at home? You don't have to be a medical person - just careful and committed to the process. Ask your dialysis center or nephrologist about the benefits of home treatment: both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis can be done at home. LGromkoMD

Nurse: A dialysis nurse will be better able to help you through treatment and during the session.
