Position Description

Great News!  DaVita is currently seeking a Registered Nurse to handle Patient Education and Case Management for our amazing Peritoneal Dialysis Patients to join our amazing Dialysis Team in Union Gap, WA!


This is an unbelievable and fantastic opportunity to receive full training in both dialysis AND patient education, and nurse case management!



**  $5,000 HIRING BONUS Available!  **


**  New Grads Encouraged to Apply!  **


As a Peritoneal Dialysis Registered Nurse (PD RN), you educate your patients on how to perform self-dialysis, and you take responsibility for the complete ongoing care of each patient to ensure their treatment stays on track. You will work a Monday to Friday schedule - yet your impact on the lives of our patients will be felt every day. 95% of your work will be performed at the dialysis center and just 5% would involve visits to patient homes to ensure self-dialysis and set up is being performed properly.

 

Through this experience, the trusting relationships you build as a peritoneal home therapy nurse with patients and their families are strong and fulfilling.

 

"Patients truly depend on you for the answers. You are their lifeline. You're the first person they think of and call if something goes wrong and it's your responsibility to do the troubleshooting and get them back on track." - Sabrina, PD RN

Here's what you can expect as a Peritoneal Dialysis Registered Nurse:

 

Complexity - Embrace a mentally demanding RN role with many moving parts.

Expect to manage "a very organized chaos." You multitask in myriad ways - put down one patient's chart, start another, work with a physician, run out to get a medication, respond to a supplier's request - with lots of loose ends to pull together and a lot of follow up. It's challenging, fun and keeps your day fresh.

 

Educator - Empower patients to live healthier lives sharing your knowledge.

You've got to love teaching and education. Training patients takes time and mental energy and the rewards of that investment come in seeing the transformation of your patients from feeling sick and afraid, to strong and independent.  

 

Autonomy - Provide comprehensive patient care in an independent setting.

Plan to be on your toes at all times. You use your mind constantly. You apply your "core" nursing skills to assess, diagnose and implement complete care plans as you look at the whole patient. There's a lot to track and manage and the joy comes in witnessing how your care impacts patients' lives.
