Peritoneal Dialysis Registered Nurse PD RN

Company: DaVita
Location: Baton Rouge
Posted on: May 16, 2020

Job Description:

As a Peritoneal Dialysis Registered Nurse (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. You will work a Monday to Friday schedule-yet your impact on the lives of our patients will be felt every day.

If you havent considered Nephrology nursing before, read on as we think that you should. Dialysis Experience is NOT required.

What you can expect:


  • Complexities - 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. If you feel your calling has always been to be both a nurse and educator, then you will love your work as a home hemodialysis registered nurse. 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 Well Provide:

    More than just pay, our DaVita Rewards package connects teammates to what matters most: robust health care coverage, retirement planning and savings tools, opportunities for career development, and well-being resources.

    • Comprehensive benefits: Medical, dental, vision, 401k, paid time off, PTO cash out, DaVita-negotiated discounts on hundreds of items from your cell phone plan to movie tickets, Bright Horizons backup care, elder care and more.
    • Paid training: DaVita offers all new teammates a robust, paid training program to help you gain 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 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
      • 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 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

        Requirements:

        • 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 Home Hemodialysis (HHD) nursing experience
          • Training/Teaching/Healthcare Education background
          • Certified Nephrology Nurse (CNN) or Certified Dialysis Nurse (CDN)
