Hi Melissa,

In the case of 'rendre visite à quelqu'un' you only conjugate the verb 'rendre' and 'visite' doesn't change , so in the passé composé it would be -

J'ai rendu visite à 

Tu as rendu visite à 

Il/elle/on a rendu visite à 

Nous avons rendu visite à 

Vous avez rendu visite à

Ils/elles ont rendu visite à 

 Hope this helps!

The word visite is a noun in that phrase: rendre visite à qqn.
