Independence - Manage your patients on your own in a hospital setting.
As a teammate in a hospital  setting, you will typically be the only dialysis nurse in the hospital during your shift. You are not alone though. You will work very closely with the hospital staff each day to assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for critically ill patients.

Intensity - Expect the unexpected.

No two days are ever the same for an dialysis nurse- The setting is dynamic and each patient's needs are unique. (Be sure to ask your recruiter about the commute range for this position.) 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.
