Position Description

What you do as a Dialysis RN is vitally important and makes an exceptional difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

As a Registered Nurse at DaVita you will constantly be on your toes 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 well-being. 

As a Staff Registered Nurse (Hemodialysis RN) 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. 

Patients - Help patients improve their quality of life by delivering outstanding clinical outcomes in a chronic setting. 

Relationships - Build long-term bonds with your patients and their families. 

Team - Your team supports one another and creates a fun work environment. 

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

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.
