Organ and Tissue Donation: The Transplantation Basics


Organ and tissue donation saves the lives of thousands of people every year.

Over 100 million people are currently on the organ donor list in the U.S. The transplant nurse plays an important role in helping people to register to become organ donors and to also connect those on waiting lists with donors. A registered nurse helps a living donor to prepare for a transplantation procedure, and makes the donor aware of any risks associated with the process. Transplant nurses also provide care for those who are the recipients of organs, such as a kidney or heart. The transplant nurse provides essential care in the recovery phase for a patient who has received an organ for transplantation. Download this white paper to learn what role the nurse plays in organ donation and transplantation, the laws that nurses should know, and more.
