Been looking through the threads and money is not discussed as well as I need....
Ive been in the ICU for 5 years and half of it traveling. I am now interested in going into acute dialysis and need to know what I am worth. Ive got a job offer in San Antonio with Fresinius and they will train me (she said its about 8 weeks depending on how fast you pick it up). I did a travel assignment in an ICU there earlier this year and would grill the dialysis nurses on their experiences and I think I would really like dialysis. One RN that had been doing this 12 years said last year she made about $100,000. This is of course working 80 hours a week.
So the training is paid hourly and when on your own paid by the treatment. Can anyone in Texas or really any southern state tell me what you get per acute dialysis treatment?
Also, is call every other weekend the norm? Is that usually paid even if you do no treatments? Do you take this much call even after working for years? How are Fresinius benefits? Do you like the insurance?
any info is appreciated
