Acute Registered Nurse RN

Company: DaVita
Location: Norfolk
Posted on: July 14, 2019

Job Description:

Hospital Services (Acute) Registered NurseDaVita is seeking a Registered Nurse who is looking to give life to patients in an Acute Hospital setting. RNs in this role work autonomously alongside the hospital staff to assess, troubleshoot, and make sound decisions for the critically ill patients. 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:

  • 1:1 Patient Care. Deliver acute hemodialysis to in-patients with chronic kidney disease, as well as patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) and transplant . Average Patient to Nurse Ratio is 2:1 or 1:1.
  • Patient education. Whether this is the first or a blip in their chronic treatment, our RNs are experts in educating our patients and families.
  • Specialized, complex care. RNs deliver care to 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.
  • Expect the unexpected. When you walk in the door each day you don't know what patients you might have, their condition, when you will get them or when you will be done for the day.
  • 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. Our Hospital Services group performs 1.1M treatments annually.
  • Schedule. No two days are ever the same for an acute dialysis nurse - long days and on call are required. Schedules vary by hospital system. For this role expect to know your weekly schedule in advance, but your daily schedule may change depending on patient needs. Must be in commutable distance based on on-call requirements.
  • The Gold Seal. As an Ambulatory Health Care accredited provider, DaVita is following and meeting the highest standards of care, providing care in line with the highest industry standards according to The Joint Commission. We expect our nurses to commit to improving patient health through clinical goal setting and quality improvement initiatives.What we'll provide:
    • In-classroom and hands on training: if you are new to dialysis, we'll provide a 9-12 week paid training and the support to guide you through to becoming a nephrology nurse.
    • 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.
    • Education assistance and license reimbursement: annual $3,000 tuition reimbursement and potential $25,000 scholarship opportunity. CNN and CDN certification reimbursement.
    • 3000+ locations across the U.S. for wherever life may take you.
    • Comprehensive benefits package: including medical, dental, vision, 401k plan, $2,500 cash gift for new parents, back-up child and elder care and so much moreSome details about this position:
      • Your 9-10 weeks of training will include a combination of classroom and hands-on learning, through DaVita's award-winning training programs
      • 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 You Must Have (aka. Requirements):

        • 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
