Posted on: October 14, 2021

Job Description:

1203 Crestside DrSte 216, Coppell, Texas, 75019-4926, United States of America

RN, Acute Dialysis Registered Nurse – Denison/Sherman Texas

1:1 or 2:1 (max) patient ratio

Dialysis Experience is NOT required.

Full Time Position

Is Acute Dialysis Nursing right for you?  Dialysis experience is not required, we will provide you an extensive (12 week) paid training program.  You will also be afforded the opportunity to work (1:1 Critical) and (2:1 Stable) patient ratio max.  In the Acute setting you will be cross trained in all of the dialysis modalities as well as cross trained in all specialties within a hospital.   Our nurses treat critical patients at the bedside and stable patients in one of our dialysis suites on campus at the hospital.  If you like variety in your day and want to use your critical thinking skills - this is the position for you! Dialysis is absolutely rewarding as you watch your patients' condition change before your eyes.

What you can expect:

  • Use your critical care thinking skills.  You’ll be able to leverage your nursing skills for patients who are often dealing with multiple co-morbidities and/or acute conditions which require unique treatment plans and the ability to leverage a broad range of nursing skills and knowledge.
  • Not just hemodialysis. Acute RNs may deliver nephrology care across multiple renal therapies: peritoneal, continuous renal replacement and apheresis.
  • Autonomy in a hospital setting. Deliver dialysis to patients at a particular hospital or group of hospitals and become an integral part of their team and ours. As a teammate in an acute setting you work on your own almost all of the time. Each day you assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for critical patients.
  • Dynamic environment. No two days are ever the same for an acute dialysis nurse. You’ll work within a variety of settings (ICU, CCU, ER and more), and you’ll be able to keep learning new nursing skills on top of dialysis.

Requirements:

  • Current and valid Registered Nurse (RN) license in the state where practicing
  • Flexibility in schedule – schedule is provided several weeks in advance. In the Hospital setting we provide treatments to patients 7 days a week. Days generally start at 7am with first patient of the day. On average 1 day of call is required for emergent/critical patients. Schedule varies for each region – will discuss further during interview. 
  • Experience assessing, trouble shooting and making sound recommendations in stressful situations
  • Physical Requirement: nurses often have to push/pull large hemodialysis machines around the hospital with little or no assistance
  • 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

What we will provide:

More than just pay, our DaVita Rewards package connects teammates to what matters most including:

  • Comprehensive benefits
  • Support for you and your family
  • Paid training
  • Opportunity for a nursing career for a lifetime.
