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.
If you haven't considered Nephrology before, read on as we think that you should. Dialysis Experience is NOT required.

  • What you can expect:*

  • Long term patient relationships. 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. Some holidays required.

  • A clinical leader: DaVita has the highest percentage of facilities meeting or exceeding CMS's standards in the government's two key performance programs. We expect our nurses to commit to improving patient health through clinical goal setting and quality improvement initiatives.

  • What We'll Provide:*
    More than just pay, our DaVita Rewards package connects teammates to what matters most including:

  • Comprehensive benefits: Medical, dental, vision, 401(k) match, paid time off, PTO cash out

  • Support for you and your family: family resources, EAP counseling sessions, access Headspace, backup child and elder care, maternity/paternity leave and more

  • Paid training: DaVita offers all new dialysis teammates a robust, paid training program to help you learn the right dialysis skills. 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 experiences for nurses.
