HOSPITAL SERVICES (ACUTE) REGISTERED NURSE (DIALYSIS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED)



DaVita is seeking a REGISTERED NURSE who is LOOKING TO GIVE LIFE TO PATIENTS IN AN ACUTE HOSPITAL SETTING. RNs in this role work autonomously alongside the hospital staff to assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for the critically ill patients.



WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:



* 1:1 PATIENT CARE. Deliver acute hemodialysis to in-patients with chronic kidney disease, as well as patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and transplant. Average Patient to Nurse Ratio is 2:1 or 1:1.

* SPECIALIZED, COMPLEX CARE. RNs deliver care to patients who are often dealing with multiple co-morbidities and/or acute conditions which require unique treatment plans and the ability to leverage a broad range of nursing skills and knowledge.

* NOT JUST HEMODIALYSIS. Acute RNs may deliver nephrology care across multiple renal therapies: peritoneal, continuous renal replacement and apheresis.

* EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED. When you walk in the door each day you dont know what patients you might have, their condition, when you will get them or when you will be done for the day.

We expect our nurses to commit to improving patient health through clinical goal setting and quality improvement initiatives.



WHAT WELL PROVIDE:



* IN-CLASSROOM AND HANDS ON TRAINING: if you are new to dialysis, well provide a 9-12 week paid training and the support to guide you through to becoming a nephrology nurse.

* OPPORTUNITY FOR A NURSING CAREER FOR A LIFETIME. DaVita is committed to providing robust development and experience for nurses.

* EDUCATION ASSISTANCE AND LICENSE REIMBURSEMENT: annual $3,000 tuition reimbursement and potential $25,000 scholarship opportunity. CNN and CDN certification reimbursement.

* 3000+ LOCATIONS across the U.S. for wherever life may take you.
