Position Description

Improve lives, form lasting relationships and have fun at work.

"I work in stressful situations where patients need urgent attention and it's exciting to be able to help people get better and get through crisis." - Jerry A.

Work autonomously in an intense hospital environment - without the typical hospital routine. Provide the highest level of care at one of the more than 800 hospital units and ensure your patients' safety, comfort, and well-being with a nurse to patient ratio typically not more than 1:2. As a nurse at DaVita you are on your toes working in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment with new challenges to trouble-shoot and overcome daily. Your sense of purpose and accomplishment at the end of each day is powerful.
 
What can you expect as an acute dialysis nurse at DaVita?
 
Patients - Help your patients, when they need it the most. 
Patient care is our top priority and we look for teammates who share our commitment to Service Excellence as well as Continuous Improvement. You can build your career in nephrology and practice multiple therapies (CRRT, aphaeresis, etc.) as an Acute Nephrology RN at DaVita
 
Independence - Manage your patients on your own in a hospital setting.
As a teammate in an acute setting you, work on your own almost all of the time. Each day you assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for critical patients. What an exciting challenge to take on!
 
Intensity - Expect the unexpected.
No two days are ever the same for an acute dialysis nurse. The setting is dynamic and each patient's needs are unique. When you walk in the door each day you don't know what patients you might have - their condition, when you will get them or when you will be done for the day.

"I love problem solving and the challenge of the role of acute nursing. I get a lot of respect from the doctors and my team." - Ginny E.

As a Dialysis Nurse in training, you will improve the lives, form lasting relationships, and have fun at work. 
                       
As part of our professional team of clinicians, you will ensure the compassionate, professional delivery of all dialysis-related nursing services in an outpatient setting. As a nurse at DaVita you will constantly be working in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment with new challenges to trouble-shoot and overcome. Make the most of your nursing skills to provide the highest level of care to our patients and ensure their safety, comfort, and wellbeing. 

Our Training Program is a 12-16 week paid training period in which you will gain the dialysis skills needed for a career at DaVita.
 
What can you expect as a dialysis nurse at DaVita?
 
Patients - Help patients improve their quality of life by delivering outstanding clinical outcomes.  
Success at a DaVita dialysis facility is measured by how well patients respond to their dialysis treatments. As an RN you work with a team to ensure that each patient receives the best care possible, and in turn lives a healthier life outside of the clinic.
 
Relationships - Build long-term bonds with your patients and their families.
As a dialysis nurse you see your patients three to four times each week for a few hours at a time, while they receive their treatments. The dialysis lifestyle can be very trying for our patients. By forming relationships with them, our nurses understand each patient's unique needs and help ease some of their burden.
 
Team - Your team supports one another and creates a fun work environment.
Give me a T, give me an E, finish it up with an A and an M - what's that spell? TEAM!  We have seven Core Values that we live and work by and Team is one of them.  We work hard - sometimes under pressure - but we work together with the common goal of delivering the best patient care and supporting each other in the process. 
  • We definitely work as a Team. It can be stressful at times and having a good Team means that we all help each other out despite our job title. I've worked in other clinics and there is nothing like what we have here. - Elizabeth B.
