The name Arkansas came from the Quapaw Indians, by way of early French explorers. The explorers met a group of Indians, known as the Ugakhpah, which means "people who live downstream.". These Native Americans later were called the Quapaw, also called the Arkansaw. Arkansas is the only state with an official State Cooking Vessel: Dutch oven.

Dialysis nurses use their expertise in kidney disease and treatment to make each dialysis session safe, efficient and effective. This professional is the lifeline for anyone who undergoes this complex procedure. Dialysis nurses are experts in all types of dialysis, including hemodialysis (in which a machine is used to clean the blood) and peritoneal dialysis (in which a special fluid is injected into the person’s abdominal cavity to absorb toxins). Regardless of the type of dialysis, these nurses carefully monitor the patient’s condition before, during and after the procedure and consult with physicians and technicians as needed. Because kidney disease is complex, dialysis nurses work closely with professionals from many disciplines, including physicians, dietitians, social workers and technicians. They also help patients understand their illness and treatment options and show them how to manage their disease through self-care and medication.
