"I love problem solving and the challenge of the

role of acute nursing. I get a lot of respect from the doctors and my

team." - Ginny E.

Patients - Help your patients, when they need it the

most.

Patient care is our top priority and we look for teammates

who share our commitment to Service Excellence as well as Continuous

Improvement. You can build your career in nephrology and practice multiple

therapies (CRRT and Apheresis) as an Acute Nephrology RN at DaVita.

As an Acute Nephrology RN at DaVita in Flint, you will give

back to a community in need. Disparities

plague vulnerable, minority populations in nearly every area of chronic disease

including kidney disease.Did you know

African Americans – who comprise nearly 60% of Flint’s population - are at

increased risk of developing chronic

kidney disease (CKD) leading to dialysis and transplant ? Compared

to other ethnic groups, the African American population has higher rates of diabetes

and high blood pressure , which are the two leading causes of kidney

disease. As DaVita leads the dialysis industry in clinical outcomes, you can

positively impact the city of Flint by providing the best quality, live-giving

healthcare to kidney patients as a DaVita teammate.

Independence - Manage your patients on your own in a

hospital setting.

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. What an exciting challenge to take on!

Intensity - Expect the unexpected.

No two days are ever the same for an acute dialysis nurse.

The setting is dynamic and each patient's needs are unique. 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.

Enjoy a hospital environment

without rounds, and with more time to impact your patients' lives. Are you

energized by the intensity of a fast-paced, critical care environment? Do you

prefer the autonomy of making decisions under pressure? If so, then an Acute

Dialysis Nurse role could be just right for you.

This position provides care in

our DaVita Acute Program in Flint, MI. We even have Afternoon and Weekend

Shifts available.

Great

patient care starts with a great nurse like you.
