Job Description: 

This posting is for future opportuities with DaVita


Take charge, enable independence, and enjoy the relationships



  • "Patients truly depend on you for the answers. You are their lifeline. You're the first person they think of and call if something goes wrong and it's your responsibility to do the troubleshooting and get them back on track." - Sabrina, PD RN.


Empower your patients by teaching them to administer their own dialysis and to take their health back into their own hands. As a Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) RN, you educate your patients on how to do their own dialysis from their homes, and you take responsibility for the complete ongoing care of each patient to ensure their treatment stays on track. Through this experience, the trusting relationships you build with patients and their families are strong and fulfilling.

 

You're calling the shots. Here's what you can expect:

 

Complexity - Embrace a mentally demanding role with many moving parts.

Expect to manage "a very organized chaos." 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.

 

Teaching - Empower patients to live healthier lives sharing your knowledge.

You've got to love teaching. 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.


  • "I have more autonomy and more responsibility for the patient. I give complete care and have to manage it all, but I always have someone I can call for help." - Deb, PD RN






The Shining Star in this role should have:



  • Passion for making a difference in people's lives



  • Ability to prioritize, manage time and organize many moving parts



  • Flexibility like a gymnast - okay, not literally. What we mean is someone who thrives in an environment that is constantly changing and will face new challenges head-on



  • Demonstrated clinical assessment skills



  • Minimum of 12 months' nephrology nursing experience



  • 3 months' experience in the specific modality may be obtained during 90-day training in a DaVita Home PD program supervised by RN who meets the above qualifications



  • Current driver's license, reliable transportation, and vehicle insurance in state of residence



  • Current CPR certification (or certification obtained within 60 days of hire)



  • Current RN license in state of practice



  • A.D.N degree from accredited school of nursing required; B.S.N preferred



  • CNN or CDN preferred



  • Experience in case management, home health, disease management, or hospice preferred
