In brief: Depends on treatment

There are different forms of nephritis and all are associated with hypertension.
The prognosis of a specific form of nephritis depends on response to treatment. Usual forms of treatment include a variety of iimunosuppressive medications such as prednisone, mycophenlic acid, tacrolimus or prednisone. A return of kidney function to near normal is associated with a goood prognosis.
