VIEW JOBS 10/9/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-01-07T00:00 Registered Nurse – Home Hemodialysis In this nursing role, you take responsibility for the complete ongoing care of each patient to ensure their home dialysis treatment stays on track. You will work a Monday to Friday schedule-yet your impact on the lives of our patients and their families will be felt every day. What to Expect: * Complexity - 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 your patients by teaching them to administer their own dialysis and to take their health back into their own hands. 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. What we'll provide: * In-classroom and hands on training: if you are new to dialysis, we'll provide a 9-12 week paid training and the support to guide you through to becoming a nephrology nurse. * Opportunity for a nursing career for a lifetime. DaVita is committed to providing robust development and experience for nurses. Whether you chose to remain in a patient facing/caregiving role or grow (leadership operations, corporate functions, integrated care, clinical research), we can guide you on that journey. * Education assistance and license reimbursement: annual $3,000 tuition reimbursement and potential $25,000 scholarship opportunity. CNN and CDN certification reimbursement. * 3000+ locations across the U.S. for wherever life may take you. * Comprehensive benefits package: including medical, dental, vision, 401k plan, $2,500 cash gift for new parents, back-up child and elder care and so much more Some details about this position: * Your 9-10 weeks of training will include a combination of classroom and hands-on learning, through DaVita's award-winning training programs * Training may take place in a facility or a training clinic with a class of new teammates other than your assigned home clinic * Hours of work may vary during the training period; however, you will typically be working between 32-40 hours per week during training * You must be able to work a Monday - Friday schedule * You must have: * Current Registered Nurse (RN) license in the state of practice; Minimum of 12 months' of RN experience * Current driver's license, reliable transportation, and vehicle insurance in state of residence * Associates Degree in Nursing (A.D.N) from accredited school of nursing required; Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N); three-year diploma from accredited diploma program may be substituted for nursing degree * Basic computer skills and proficiency in MS Word and Outlook You might also have (a.k.a. nice-to-haves): * Previous Chronic Hemodialysis, Acute Dialysis and/or Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) nursing experience * Training/Teaching/Healthcare Education background * Certified Nephrology Nurse (CNN) or Certified Dialysis Nurse (CDN) Interested in learning more about home hemodialysis?
