You can make an exceptional difference in the lives of our patients and their families dealing with end-stage renal failure or chronic kidney disease.

Build meaningful relationship with patients and their family in an intimate outpatient setting. * A team that feels and functions like a family. Staff RNs are a central part of a small interdisciplinary team of clinicians. Work alongside and support technicians, other nurses, dietitians, social workers, physicians and the center manager. * Fun is one of our core values. Happier nurses = healthier patients. * Specialized, complex care. RNs deliver care to patients who are often dealing with multiple co-morbidities which require unique treatment plans and the ability to leverage a broad range of nursing skills and knowledge. * Fast paced. Our RNs oversee a group of patients (census dependent on state laws) with the support of PCTs to conduct patient observations, measuring stats and machine set up. You will work with your head, heart and hands each day. * Schedule. Shifts are typically 10-12 hours, 3-4 days per week. Schedule times will vary by locations but most of our RNs work early morning or days shifts.

The training is a mix of classroom and hands on training. * 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. * 3000+ locations across the U.S. for wherever life may take you. Some details about this position: * Training may take place in a facility or a training clinic with a class of new teammates other than your assigned home clinic * You must be flexible on the final home clinic placement it may be in a different location; there is also the potential to float to various clinics during and after your training * You must have a flexible schedule and be able to work mornings, evenings, weekends, and holiday * Current Registered Nurse (RN) license in the state of practice; Graduate Nurse pre-licensure available in some locations * A desire to deliver care in an empathetic, compassionate way.
