Registered Nurse Chronic1405 Victoria Station, Victoria, Texas,
77901, United States of America
DaVita is seeking a Registered Nurse who is looking to give life in
an outpatient dialysis center. 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
* 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
* 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
