Position Description

As a member of our STAR Dialysis Registered Nurse in training program, you will improve patients’ lives, form lasting relationships, and have fun at work. 


The STAR Program is a 9-10 week paid training period in which you will gain the dialysis skills needed to ensure the compassionate, professional delivery of all dialysis-related nursing services in an outpatient chronic hemodialysis setting. 


As a nurse at DaVita you will be working in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment with new challenges to trouble-shoot and overcome. You will make the most of your nursing skills delivering exceptional service to your patients, while working closely with a small interdisciplinary team of nurses, patient care technicians, social workers and dietitians.


What can you expect as a dialysis RN 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. 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.

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. 


Clinical Leader- DaVita is the top performer with more 4 and 5 STAR dialysis centers according to CMS.


“The Star Learning program really prepared me for the world of dialysis. The instructors and guest speakers were highly educated and eager to pass on their wisdom. When you start the program it can be overwhelming, but you'll soon find out that the classes while heavy in topic are fun and engaging, filled with interactive activities and games. 10 weeks of theory classes paired with on the floor training with a preceptor really made the transition from RN to Renal RN seamless. I recommend this program to anyone from RN to PCT.  You will not regret taking this opportunity!” – Jessica, Recent STAR Dialysis in Training "Graduate"
