Regional Registered Nurse - Peritoneal Dialysis
DaVita


Job Info


78030 WILDCAT DRSTE 102, PALM DESERT, California, 92211, United States of America

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 haven't 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 peritoneal dialysis 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.

Some details about this position:

  • This is a regional float position. You will support patients at clinics throughout Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Cathedral City and Yucca Valley. This is a clinic-based position but occasional home visits may be required.
  • The typical schedule for this position is Monday - Friday. Clinics are closed in the evening and on weekends but telephonic on-call may be required one week per month.

Requirements:

  • Current Registered Nurse (RN) license in the state of practice
  • Minimum of 12 months' of RN experience
  • Previous peritoneal dialysis experience strongly preferred
  • 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)

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.
